Materials Science

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

The field of materials science combines disciplines, including engineering, chemistry, biochemistry and other technologies, in order to research and develop new materials for use in manufacturing. This growing field prepares students to work towards solving problems on a global scale as natural resources become threatened.

The USA remains the world’s most popular destination for international students. Universities in the US dominate the world rankings and the country also offers a wide variety of exciting study locations. State university systems are partially subsidized by state governments, and may have many campuses spread around the state, with hundreds of thousands of students.

Best Masters in Materials Science in USA 2017. Civil Engineering Master's programs The Master's degrees offer students a chance to advance their knowledge above that of the undergraduate level, and a chance to begin to specialize in one of the sub-disciplines of Civil or Environmental Engineering. All Master's degrees may require that students take one or more undergraduate courses as articulation (pre-requisite) if they are coming from a different undergraduate engineering or a related science field in order to become fully prepared for graduate work in Civil or Environmental Engineering. Thesis Option The Master's degree programs can either be research-oriented (thesis option) or non-research-oriented (non-thesis option). The Thesis option is the only option for students who are receiving a fellowship or assistantship (GTA or GRA) from the department. Therefore, it is strongly recommended for all full-time students, even those who think that they can pay for their own education. A minimum of twenty four (24) semester hours of approved course work along with a minimum of six (6) hours of thesis credits is required. A minimum of twenty four (24) semester hours of approved course work along with a minimum of six (6) hours of thesis credits is required. No more than six hours of thesis credits will be applied toward degree requirements. At least 15 credit hours must be at the 6000-level (includes thesis hours). A maximum of 9 semester hours of graduate credit may be transferred into the program from non-degree-seeking status or regionally accredited institutions. Only grades... [-]

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 on 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 materials 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. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Maryland offers more than 40 graduate courses in order to assist in the intellectual development of the graduate MSE student. We are continuously improving our course materials in order to keep it relevant and in order to allow the student to make a significant career impact upon graduation.... [-]

The Graduate Program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering offers research and education opportunities leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. [+]

Best Masters in Materials Science in USA 2017. The Graduate Program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering offers research and education opportunities leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is well-equipped for graduate research in aerosol science and engineering, biochemical engineering, computational modeling, fluid mechanics and mixing, fuel cell technology, metabolic engineering and systems biology, nanoparticle technology, polymer processing and characterization, polymer reaction engineering, process control, thermodynamics and transport phenomena, and systems research. The Department maintains a distributed computing network consisting of research laboratories and a PC laboratory. Major research facilities including electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and NMR are coordinated through a variety of laboratories. General Requirements Before graduate courses in Chemical Engineering are attempted, the candidate must fulfill certain minimal course prerequisites either by previous experience or by taking selected undergraduate courses. These minimal prerequisites are descibed in the GPA and prerequisite policy page. Some of these prerequisites may be fulfilled by concurrent registration if necessary. No courses numbered below 400 may count towards the minimal 30 credits required for the degree. A maximum of 6 credits of 400 level courses may count towards the degree subject to prior approval by the Graduate Director. Graduate courses with an EMPM designation cannot be used to satisfy the minimum 30 hours without prior permission of the Graduate Director. All graduate students (full and part-time, on and off campus) are expected to attend all research seminars, i.e., those not... [-]
