Degrees in Materials Science and Engineering include specific areas of research and study in biomaterials, ceramics, composites, computational materials science, electronic materials, metals, polymers, nanomaterials, and nuclear materials. The program is offered at University of Florida.


Degrees in NE include specific areas of research and study in advanced nuclear power concepts and systems, digital control of nuclear reactor power plant technology and operations, reactor dynamics and control, and advanced radiation detectors and analysis in support of nuclear forensics and homeland security.

Key facts:

  • Nontraditional Degree Programs: The Department offers combined bachelor/master’s degree programs: MSE BS/MS, NE BS/MS, and students may also combine the MSE BS with the MS awarded through the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering (BME). The combined bachelor/master’s program allows qualified students to earn both degrees in materials science and engineering with savings of a tangible number of credit hours. Qualified students are allowed to begin master’s course work in their junior years and double count specific graduate courses for both degrees. The Materials Science and Engineering program is offered at University of Florida.
  • The master’s degree may be completed within 2 to 3 semesters after completing the bachelor’s degree. Program admission requirements are (1) satisfaction of Graduate School admission requirements prior to the beginning of the senior year, (2) an upper division GPA of at least 3.5 in MSE and 3.4 in NE, (3) for MSE, completion of a minimum of 18 credit hours of courses, (4) admission by the Department’s Graduate Admission Committee and approval by the College of Engineering and the Graduate School. For more information, contact the Department.
