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 aimed at graduating senior students who want to engage in graduate studies in materials science and engineering. All MS students must satisfy a practicum requirement by completing an approved course that meets the practicum requirement, or an approved project. The non-thesis MS program can be completed in two semesters, although most students take longer. Part-time enrollment in the program is also permitted. Students choose an area of concentration from i) biomaterials, ii) electronic/photonic materials, iii) materials for energy and environment, or iv) nanomaterials.

Engineering Practice Option

Master’s students may add the optional “with Engineering Practice” designation to their Master of Science or Master of Engineering degree by completing an approved internship in their field of study.

The Engineering Practice option recognizes the power of combining rigorous academic coursework with supervised real-world research or industrial applications. Participating students add value to their academic experience with a related internship that enables them to both develop and apply their technical, project management, and leadership skills. The degree rewards participating students with a designation recognized by employers and research institutions.

The Engineering Practice option is available to all College of Engineering graduate students, including international students. For more information, contact the ENG Graduate Programs Office.
