Graduate students in the Materials Science program at University of New Hampshire benefit from studying in interdisciplinary fields drawing from faculty representing seven different departments in science and engineering disciplines. Students gain versatile experiences attractive to a wide range of industries.


The Materials Science degree at University of New Hampshire is a unique combination of both fundamental science and engineering, preparing students to tackle technical problems from a materials perspective in fields such as sustainable energy, sustainable and biodegradable materials, stimuli responsive coatings, and advanced electronic materials. 

The M.S. and Ph.D. in materials science and engineering degrees are truly sought after and can open more doors to opportunities than traditional single-discipline degrees. 

Why Choose UNH’S Materials Science Program (MSP)?

Our materials science program offers unique experiences. Research can be conducted under a single faculty member, however, in many cases several faculty collaborate from different disciplines. 

Past and current students have had the chance to contribute to materials critical to space telescopes with farther reach than the Hubble, novel materials from boron nitride and the opportunity to work with local companies, as well as the newly formed biomaterials research center (NH BioMADE) with research in prosthetics, tissue engineering and biosensors. 

The MSP, in collaboration with the UNH Physics Department, also offers a five-year program awarding a B.S. in physics and culminating in a materials science M.S.
