The Materials Science and Engineering Department offers three graduate degree programs representing a range of opportunities for advanced study. While they share several common features, the programs are designed to serve students with a variety of academic backgrounds, technical interests, and career aspirations. In all three programs, it is expected that our graduate students will acquire fundamental understanding of the structure, properties, processing, and performance of materials, underpinned by the foundational pillars of thermodynamics and kinetics and manifested by the immense landscape of engineered materials and the broad range of physical, chemical, and mechanical functionalities that may be realized in them. Our degree programs include diverse combinations of classroom instruction, seminars, laboratory training, guided teaching experiences, individually mentored independent study, and various forms of materials research experiences, all intended to serve students with a wide range of educational goals. Students are admitted with undergraduate or prior graduate qualifications in a variety of technical areas, and each program of study is tailored to meet the needs of the individual student. The accomplishments of our alumni demonstrate that our graduate training enables a wide range of career paths, but specific types of technical employment opportunities are targeted by the program components contained within each of our degree programs, as summarized below.
