If you are interested in a career in Materials Science and Engineering or want to learn more about this exciting field at the graduate level, you have come to the right place! Our Doctoral and Masters degree programs in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE, MatSci) encompasses advanced education in the entire spectrum of the field of materials: organics, semiconductors, ceramics, metals, and composites. Materials are everywhere! The technology revolution of the 21st century is based on products made from new materials. There are three basic elements of the field that come to play in the development of the graduate MSE student:

Processing and synthesis: This is the key to the question that must be answered. How can I produce this product? Structure and Properties: This is the key to the question of characterizing the materials, and from which to understand the state or condition of the material. Characterizing a material involves the understanding of the ways a material is configured from atomic to macroscale. These arrangements are correlated with processing and coupled strongly with material properties. Performance: The composite of structure, properties, and processing is integrated into how the product performs. ... [-]
