Graduate Program


A student conducting research.

The interdepartmental graduate program in materials science offers a MS and PhD in materials science. Neither of these program has a specific set of required courses, but instead allows students to choose from the course list in the Graduate Bulletin under materials science. These courses are generally also cross-listed with one of twelve participating science and engineering departments.

Contact the director of the materials science program for more information about our graduate program.


Students who are interested in a comprehensive view of the program should see the Materials Science Graduate Handbook (PDF).

We also suggest checking out the Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs website, which has information on a variety of topics, including:
