Graduates of the program formulate solutions to materials problems through the use of multi-disciplinary approaches made possible with a broad background in basic materials science and engineering coupled with an area of specialization.
Two options are available in this degree program: one option involves a thesis component and the other option involves coursework only. In the thesis option, 24 hours of coursework and a minimum 6 credit hours of thesis research are required. With the second option, 32 hours of coursework must be taken. In the latter option however, the students are required to undertake a project under the supervision of a faculty member. Because students graduating with this degree are expected to have a broad-based fundamental knowledge in both materials engineering and materials science, every student is required to take the following core courses.
