 The University of Michigan Department of Materials Science and Engineering - Research is one of the oldest and largest programs in the country. We offer a challenging, well-rounded education in one of the most technically diverse departments in the country.


Materials Science and Engineering - Research offered at the University of Michigan is a naturally multidisciplinary field. When there are advances in nanoscience, energy conversion and storage, photonics and sensor design, MSE research advances further. When we are able to advance the field materials science, other fields also advance.


The majority of our 25-member faculty hold joint appointments in other engineering and scientific disciplines, including macromolecular science and engineering, chemical, biomedical and mechanical engineering, physics, biology and chemistry.

Our faculty work together with graduate students to create cutting-edge research on campus.
