Graduate study in MSE systematically develops the fundamental scientific and engineering principles that govern the behavior and application of materials. The department offers three graduate degrees:
Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering
Master of Science in Materials Science
Doctor of Philosophy
The Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering degree is a course-based and can be completed in one year. The Master of Science in Materials Science degree requires equal numbers of research and coursework units, and can be completed in two years (three or four semesters). Students can also study for a Masters degree on a part time basis. The Doctoral degree is research-based and can be completed in four years or less.
The College of Engineering offers two Master’s programs attractive to students with an engineering background. More information about these programs can be found below:
Engineering & Technology Innovation Management (E&TIM) program offers students with technical backgrounds exposure to technology innovation and management.
Masters in Energy Science and Technology and Policy (ESTP) is a recent addition to the college of engineering and offers students with a technological background exposure to different areas of Energy issues.
