Graduate Program

The School offers both MS and PhD degrees in the field of Materials Science and Engineering. These programs emphasize the application of the basic sciences to the understanding of the structure, properties, and processing of materials. Programs of study are designed to broaden and deepen the student's knowledge of those parts of the field which are of most universal applicability. Admission is open to students with undergraduate baccalaureate degrees not only in the field of Materials Science and Engineering but also in other engineering and science fields. Students are encouraged to apply early in the fall term. Admission is based upon prior performance and projected success as indicated by undergraduate scholastic performance, industrial work experience, and recommendations from those most familiar with the student's record. Admission is to the master's programs and only those with exceptional backgrounds are considered for direct admission to the PhD program.
