In our state-of-the-art labs, you’ll apply new materials to existing engineering applications and the property of matter to various areas of science and engineering. If you’re fascinated by how materials properties change and perform based on different manufacturing process parameters and environmental applications, you’ll find many opportunities for investigating that during the Materials Science program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
You’ll explore the structure, properties, processing, kinetics, thermodynamics, and performance of existing materials and develop improved processes to make new materials for fields involving medical devices, health care, energy, and nanotechnology. As a student in our masters in material science program, you’ll apply your wide-ranging knowledge of chemistry, physics, biology, and math with mechanical, chemical, and electrical engineering principles to uncover previously unknown uses and properties of materials.
