The M.S. degree in materials science requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of graduate courses. There are two paths to obtaining an M.S.: Plan A, with thesis, and Plan B, without thesis.   Plan B is the normal, default, option for entering students.  If a student wishes to pursue a Plan A path instead, it is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with a faculty thesis advisor to supervise his/her work and to inform the MSC program office of this.

For students electing to obtain the M.S. degree with thesis (Plan A), the following requirements apply: The 30 credit hours must include a minimum of 20 credit hours of MSC graduate courses plus 10 credit hours for research, and the student must successfully complete an oral defense of his/her thesis, after all other degree requirements have been completed.


M.S. degree without a thesis (Plan B):


For students electing to obtain the M.S. degree without a thesis (Plan B), the following requirements apply: The 30 credit hours must include a minimum of 24 credit hours of MSC graduate courses plus 6 credit hours of other related courses. A student in Plan B must pass a comprehensive oral examination.
