About

The Advanced Materials Engineering program of The University of Texas at San Antonio is administered across departmental boundaries within the College of Engineering. It is designed to attract and accommodate applicants with either science or engineering college degrees wishing to study materials engineering to enhance their job positions or research/leadership potentials. 

Overview

Basic Degree Information/Description

The goal of the Advanced Materials Engineering program of The University of Texas at San Antonio is to train graduate students with state-of-the-art technical knowledge and skill sets necessary for independent critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making to address multidisciplinary problems in materials engineering.  

The degree program also provides students with opportunities in taking multidisciplinary courses from within the College of Engineering and from other colleges at UTSA in order to enhance students' leadership, problem solving, and/or entrepreneurship skills.  The new graduate degree program will be administered across departmental boundaries within the College of Engineering.

Graduates of the MS-MatE will be general practitioners and specialists, thus the degree program will provide the necessary balance between the fundamental and technical aspects of the field.  All students will take core courses to achieve a common platform of understanding and knowledge covering topics in three interlinked areas: (a) Structure-function relationships in materials, which determine behavior at the macro-, micro-, nano-, molecular- and atomic-levels; (b) Synthesis, characterization and measurement of materials (ceramics, composites, metals, polymers, multifunctional and metamaterials) especially those with novel properties to address current and future technological challenges; and  (c) Design and applications of materials that address critical issues facing society including energy, sustainability and health care.

Each student will choose one of the concentrations according to materials classifications and applications tailored to his or her specialities:

  • Multifunctional Electronic, Dielectric, Photonic and Magnetic Materials
  • Multifunctional Biomedical Materials

Interwoven in the two concentrations will be concepts of computational modeling that develops new materials with novel properties and responses for targeted applications.

Why MS-MatE?

  • Interdisciplinary curriculum (taking courses from Materials Engineering, Management of Technology, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Bio-Engineering, and other science and engineering disciplines across departmental boundaries).
  • State-of-the-art technical knowledge and skill training
  • Internship and Fellowship opportunities
  • Pathways to Doctoral Programs and leadership job opportunities in Materials Sciences and Engineering
Graduates will have advanced knowledge and capability to solve problems related to the synthesis, characterization, design, and application of materials. Graduates choosing biomedical material concentration will also be a job-ready workforce for the continued growth of biotechnology.
