About

The Material Science and Engineering program from Florida International University offers specialization in metallurgy, ceramics, electronic materials, nanomaterials, and biomaterials. 

Overview

Materials Science and Engineering is a dynamic field involved in the synthesis, structure, properties, and performance of materials. Advanced materials are the foundation of manufactured products and many of the technological advances of this century were enabled by the development of new materials. 

The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering offers both thesis and non-thesis options for the Master’s Degree in Material Science and Engineering program from Florida International University. A student seeking the Master’s degree with or without thesis is required to pass a comprehensive oral or written examination.

All work counted for the Master’s degree must be completed during the six years immediately following the date of admission.

Potential Careers

There is an increasing demand for graduates in materials science and engineering, with high technology industries leading the need for graduates. In fact, many of the companies needing materials scientists and engineers did not exist 20 years ago. Because everything is made of materials and new materials, such as nanomaterials, are rapidly being developed, materials science and engineering is a growth field in engineering.
