The Master of Science degree in Materials Engineering at the University of Dayton is a great way for B.S. engineers or scientists to gain specialization in the ever-growing field of materials science and engineering.

Key facts:

  • Generally most bachelor degrees in engineering and science include only a limited exposure to the processing, properties and microstructure of solid state materials used throughout society.  Yet the bulk of engineers and many scientists will at some point in their career become involved with material selection for new products or manufacturing plants, testing and characterization of products, failure analysis, etc. Thus, our master’s degree allows students to expand and supplement their current skill set in a relatively short period of time whether they choose a thesis or non-thesis option. 
  • The Materials Engineering  students at the University of Dayton include those who recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in engineering or science, as well as those who have been out in industry or the government sector for any period of time and wish to “start-up” again. Most of our classes are offered after 5 p.m. for those working full-time jobs off campus, and some of our courses are offered online. Overall, we have a very flexible program that can accommodate a diverse array of students.
