Master of Science Program

1. The mission of the Materials Science and Engineering master’s degree program is to provide students with an advanced education in materials science and engineering and prepare them for long and successful careers in industry and government. We prepare our graduates to be key contributors to materials science and engineering research in industry and/or academia and to further their education by entering a doctoral degree program.

2. Objectives:

  • Students will demonstrate a broad knowledge of modern materials science and engineering.
  • Students will apply their knowledge and analytical skills to create effective and novel solutions to practical problems.
  • Students will communicate effectively and work collaboratively.

Ph.D. Program
1. The mission of the Ph.D. program in materials science and engineering is to provide students with an advanced education in materials science and engineering and prepare them for long and successful professional and/or research careers in industry, government or academia. We provide our students with the expertise to make independent contributions to research and development, formulate novel problems, develop creative solutions to novel and existing problems, and serve as system architects and leaders of design teams.

2. Objectives:

  • Students will demonstrate a broad knowledge of materials science and engineering and a focused understanding of their area of expertise.
  • Students will apply their knowledge and analytical skills to create effective and novel solutions to practical problems in modern materials science and engineering.
  • Students will communicate their work effectively in professional forums and publications.
  • Students will demonstrate the ability to work both collaboratively and independently.
