MSE Degree Programs
The MSE Division integrates materials courses from Engineering, Physics, and Chemistry. Through coursework, collaborative projects and dissertation research, students can focus on biomaterials, electronic and photonic materials, nanomaterials or materials for energy and environment. We prepare you for professional careers or advanced studies, offering academic depth, interdisciplinary insight, applied experience, and access to our diverse local, regional, and national network. Check out our range of outstanding graduate degree programs. We also offer an undergraduate minor in MSE.
PhD in Materials Science & Engineering (MSE)
The Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) post-bachelor's PhD and post-master's PhD programs offer specialized study in the science, engineering, and technology of modern materials, integrating courses in engineering, chemistry, and physics.
Master of Science (MS) with thesis in Materials Science & Engineering (MSE)
The Master of Science (MS) degree in Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) is a master’s program aimed at graduating undergraduates who want to attain additional education in materials research.
Master of Science (MS) non-thesis in Materials Science & Engineering (MSE)
The Master of Science (MS) non-thesis degree in Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) is a master’s program designed for graduating senior undergraduates who wish to engage in graduate studies in materials science and engineering.
Master of Engineering (MEng) in Materials Science & Engineering (MSE)
The flexible Master of Engineering (MEng) degree in Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) is a professional master’s program that can be completed in one year of full-time study, or up to two years if an internship or project-based experience is desired. Part-time options are also available.
Master’s Degree Internship Degree Option: Engineering with Practice
The Engineering Practice designation, when added to an MS or MEng degree, recognizes the power of combining rigorous academic coursework with supervised real-world research or industrial applications.
LEAP: A Master’s Program for non-Engineers
A unique program that enables students without an undergraduate engineering degree to earn a master's degree in engineering.
Minor in Materials Science & Engineering
Engineering Undergraduates can complement their degree with an in-depth minor in Materials Science & Engineering, gaining an understanding of the properties of various materials—from metals and semiconductors to biopolymers—and learning how to manipulate those materials to make useful products.
Master of Science in Robotics & Autonomous Systems
The Master of Science in Robotics & Autonomous Systems has been designed to combine instruction in the underlying theoretical basis for modern robotics and autonomous systems with machine learning and hands-on experience in industry or research. Through coursework highlighting cutting-edge technologies and paid internship placements with industry partners and pioneering researchers, students graduate prepared for successful careers in industry or for further study in a doctoral program.
