The Master of Science (MS) Program in Materials Science and Engineering is designed to provide advanced training in materials. The program requires students to establish the necessary foundation in solid-state materials, thermodynamics, and the kinetic processes of materials, in addition to advanced materials engineering coursework. All students are required to complete a practicum. Students may satisfy the practicum requirement by completing one of two courses or an approved project. Alternatively, students may satisfy the practicum requirement by developing a research focus and carrying out original research that culminates in a written thesis. The program is designed to be completed by full-time students in one calendar year; part-time study is also permitted. Students choosing to complete a thesis should expect to complete the program in two years. Students who excel in the MSE MS program may be encouraged to apply to the MSE post-MS PhD program. Master of Science (MS) and post-bachelor PhD students must take 32 credits. Courses must be at the 500 level or higher. Only one 400-level course may be taken, with advisor approval, if needed as a prerequisite for another course in the program. The coursework requirements for the MS are as follows: Four Core courses (16 credits) Two Concentration Courses from one concentration area (8 credits) Other Course(s), one of which must be a project-based Practicum Course (8 credits)
