MSE prepares students for a career in industry or graduate study by combining traditional classroom learning with laboratory and hands-on experience. Students graduate with a solid understanding and appreciation of materials science and engineering with a broad array of specialization and concentration options that allow students to customize their degree to target specific career interests, including biomaterial, electronic and optical materials, energy conversion and storage materials, nanomaterials, polymers, and packaging materials.

The MS degree in materials science and engineering offers degrees in all areas and classes of materials, including nanomaterials, biomaterials, traditional materials, and devices. Our program takes advantage of well-equipped laboratories for characterization of materials and their properties along with several interdisciplinary centers
