Pursuing next-generation technologies and robust solutions in areas such as energy, transportation, infrastructure, cyber-security, manufacturing, wearables, agriculture, nanomaterials, and medicine, graduate students work with with our interdisciplinary faculty to address some of the world’s most critical challenges and to explore exciting new opportunities for innovation.
MSE Graduate Students – Our students come from all over the world and from a wide variety of technical fields, including all engineering disciplines as well as physics, chemistry, biology, computer science, and mathematics. Their career paths are equally diverse, and many go on to become leaders and innovators in academics, research, industry, medicine, business, and public service.
MSE Advanced Degree Options – The Department of Materials Science and Engineering offers three advanced degree options, including Ph.D, M.S. and M. Eng. degrees. We also offer two concurrent enrollment options (BS/MS and BS/MEng), where qualified students can begin to pursue an advanced degree while working on the final stages of the MSE undergraduate program.
MSE Research Assistantships – Nearly all of our graduate students enrolled in a thesis-based program (M.S. or Ph.D.) complete their graduate studies under some form of Research Assistantship, helping to offset all or part of their tuition and living expenses while pursuing an advanced degree.
