Materials Science and Engineering

The Materials Science and Engineering graduate program focuses on understanding the synthesis/processing, structure/chemistry, and properties of materials. Consistent with the multi-disciplinary nature of the field, a substantial number of our graduate students majored in fields other than materials science, and the department has a significant number of associated graduate faculty from other departments supervising thesis and dissertation research. Graduate research areas include: Thin-Film Sciences; Nanomaterials; Structural and Nuclear Materials; Dielectric and Magnetic Materials; Semiconducting and Optoelectronic Materials; Biomaterials; Computational Materials Science; Atomic-Scale Characterization.
