General Materials Science

General Materials Science & Engineering Thrust

A wide range of active research topics are pursued by faculty and students within the MS&E program. Examples of some of these topic areas include: design, synthesis, characterization and processing and manufacturing of new or improved metallic, polymeric, ceramic and composite materials for structural, microelectronic, biological, magnetic, dielectric and optical applications. This thrust area is designed to educate students in a broad range of topics and prepare them for research in these areas.

Course requirements
Students who have a strong background in any of the physical sciences or engineering disciplines are encouraged to apply to our program. To ensure that students are prepared for Materials Science and Engineering courses, we require that students complete deficiency and core courses prior to taking advanced level course. For details, see the information on our Masters and Doctoral Programs.
