The Graduate Program in Materials Science and Engineering at Iowa State gives students the opportunity to further follow their scientific interests by working towards an advanced degree. Our students work with faculty members and fellow researchers to solve real-world problems using creativity and innovation. The department houses world-class research facilities, providing students and researchers with the top tools they need to turn ideas into reality. Over two-thirds of MSE faculty are associated with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory.
