Overview

Wayne State University's graduate program in Materials Science (M.S. and Ph.D.) offers an outstanding foundation for careers in research, academia and industrial manufacturing. We have a strong focus on the development of novel nanomaterials (polymers and metals) for industrial applications ranging from automotive, medical, electronic and materials for energy-related applications. 

Broad areas of interests include energy, nanotechnology, nanomedicine, polymer processing, simulations/modeling and biofuels. Students perform research and learn in a collaborative and challenging environment.

Careers

The Wayne State University College of Engineering improves quality of life through engineering and computer science education, research innovation and entrepreneurship. Our faculty members have pioneered, educated and inspired for nearly 85 years. 

The college's 3,700-member student body has the privilege of working alongside expert faculty who have made discoveries, invented technologies and written textbooks in interdisciplinary fields such as automotive safety, data science and analytics, biomedical and healthcare engineering, cyber-physical systems, green technologies, smart manufacturing, transportation and water. 

Faculty working in the College of Engineering benefit from a diverse, supportive and inclusive environment in the unique urban setting of Midtown Detroit, which provides an abundance of industry partnerships as well as research, entrepreneurial and volunteer opportunities.
