About

The graduate programs are broad in scope, emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature of the field of materials science and engineering. The Master in Materials Science and Engineering at Wright State University is built around processing, structure, properties, and performance of advanced materials relevant to numerous areas of application, such as biomedical, energy, aerospace, environmental and manufacturing.

Facilities

Graduate students have access to a wide range of modern facilities including classrooms, laboratories, and computer systems, interconnected by local and wide area communication networks. Computational facilities include numerous Sun, DEC, and Silicon Graphics fileservers and workstations; X-windowing terminals; and personal computers. Access is also available to the Ohio Super-computer via the Ohio Academic and Research Network (OARNET).

Research

Research in materials science and engineering is focused around processing, structure, properties, and performance of metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites. Current programs include studies of advanced ceramics, metallic super conducting ceramics, polymer, ceramic, titanium and carbon matrix composites, nickel and titanium based alloys, as well as advanced nano- and meso- systems. Computation modeling of materials characteristics is also an area of research focus, with emphasis on noel application of nano-materials such as sensore, hydrogen storage, electronic and thermal transport.

The department hosts a variety of sophisticated materials research equipment. This includes a scanning transmission electron microscope with energy dispersive spectroscopy and associated specimen preparation equipment, state-of-the-art micro-Raman spectroscopy, high resolution x-ray photo electron spectroscopy (XPS), and unique controlled-atmosphere high temperature deformation testing facilities. The department also has standard laboratory equipment for fabrication and testing of materials, such as mechanical testing machines, scanning electron microscopes, an x-ray diffractometer, furnaces, microhardness testers, and optical microscopes.

Graduate students have access to a wide range of modern facilities including classrooms, laboratories, and computer systems interconnected by local and wide area communication networks. Computational facilities include numerous PC clusters, workstations, X-windowing terminals, and personal computers. Research at Wright State University is not limited to the laboratory facilities on campus. Several industrial companies, laboratories, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are involved in joint research efforts, making available their unique facilities for faculty and graduate research.

          You only need to take one of these language tests:

          • Minimum required score:

            79

            The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.

            Schedule TOEFL®
          • Minimum required score:

            6

            The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

          Academic Requirements

          You need the following GPA score:

          Required score: 2.7

          Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 2.7 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

          Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

          • This programme accepts GRE® scores. However, it does not provide a recommended score range.

            The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. The GRE® General Test contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.

            298 score required for students from non-ABET accredited undergraduate programs.

          • A bachelor's degree in engineering or a related area.
          • Applicants are welcome to include a personal statement and a letter of recommendation.
