University rank #801 (QS) , WI,
Graduate students in dental biomaterials pursue the application of scientific principles to the study of dental biomaterials including relationships among compositions, physical properties, and clinical properties for dental biomaterial systems.

About

A student in the dental biomaterials program must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours of course work, consisting of a curriculum of graduate dental biomaterials courses (23 credits), statistics (3)  and thesis work (6). The dental biomaterials graduate program is an interdisciplinary program covering principles of materials science, engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, and dentistry. Satisfactory completion of the didactic and research components of the program results in a master’s degree through the Marquette University Graduate School. In addition to the courses offered by the School of Dentistry, master’s candidates may be required by their program adviser to select courses offered through the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science or other departments. Elective courses in appropriate areas such as the dental graduate core curriculum (from the School of Dentistry) or materials science (from the College of Engineering) may also be selected according to the backgrounds and interests of the individual students.

Programme Structure

The curriculum is structured to provide a broad overview of the use of materials science in dentistry.Courses cover topics such as:
  • Metallurgy
  • Ceramics
  • Polymers
  • Mechanical behavior
  • Cements
  • Experimental techniques as they apply to dental biomaterials
Opportunities in teaching dental biomaterials and training in methods, techniques and instrumentation used in dental biomaterials research are also extended to students.
