Modern Materials, Complex Issues
This program offers a mix of theoretical study and practical experiments in areas such as nanotechnology, microelectronics, alternative energy applications and advanced materials processing and equips you to solve some of today’s most complicated industry problems with scientific contributions in electronic and magnetic materials, ceramics and polymers, and aerospace and nuclear applications.
Most students who enter the graduate program in Materials Science hold an undergraduate degree in Materials Science and Engineering or a closely related field. To be successful, you must have a solid background in chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics and the fundamentals of engineering.
The master’s program generally requires 12 to 18 months beyond the baccalaureate degree. The doctoral program typically takes at least three years beyond the baccalaureate degree.
