About

This school-wide graduate Materials and Manufacturing Technology program of the University of California, Irvine (UCI) leads to an M.S. degree in Engineering. It also offers a part-time study option for students pursuing an M.S. degree. Currently, there are 32 faculty members from six departments participating in this interdisciplinary program.

Overview

Background Suggested:

Given the nature of the Materials and Manufacturing Technology program of the University of California, Irvine (UCI) as an interdisciplinary program, students having a background and suitable training in either Materials, Engineering (Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical), or the Natural Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geology) are encouraged to participate.

Career Fields Include:

The field of MMT ranks high on the list of top careers for scientists and engineers. The services of these engineers and scientists are required in a variety of engineering operations dealing, for example, with design of semiconductors and optoelectronic devices, development of new technologies based on composites and high-temperature materials, biomedical products, performance (quality, reliability, safety, energy efficiency) in automobile and aircraft components, improvement in nondestructive testing techniques, corrosion behavior in refineries, fabrication of steels, and construction of highways and bridges. Southern California has one of the largest manufacturing bases in the world.

The materials and manufacturing industries include: aerospace, automotive, biomedical, communications, construction, defense, electronics, food processing, machining, medical instruments, metallurgy, oil refinery, pharmaceutical, optics, semiconductor, and tools, etc. The opportunity for the graduates to find a position is high. The pursuit of advanced manufacturing technology is critical to keep manufacturing activities and jobs here. This needs the talents of the engineers and the workers to design and implement cost effective manufacturing processes.

Programme Structure

  • Recommended background courses include an introduction to materials, thermodynamics, mechanical properties, and electrical/optical/magnetic properties. A student with an insufficient background may be required to take remedial undergraduate courses following matriculation as a graduate student.
