Boise State is home to one of the most productive Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) programs in the Pacific Northwest. We offer innovative undergraduate and graduate programs that facilitate interdisciplinary research with Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering.

Our faculty members are nationally and internationally recognized in the areas of novel materials, biological sciences, and nanotechnology. We promote close student collaboration with our faculty on funded research in areas such as semiconductor device reliability, nanoscale fabrication, microelectronics packaging, shape memory alloys, DNA nanotechnology, energy, biomaterials, materials characterization, and materials modeling.

The B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
