The Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering program enhances fundamental knowledge of materials science. Students develop their research and technical communication skills to prepare for further study at the doctoral level or to promote future career opportunities.

To obtain the degree, students complete coursework and a thesis. After finalizing core coursework, students become a Master of Science Candidate until completing the thesis, which usually takes around two years. View the M.S. degree requirements to find out more about the program.

Apply for Admission

The application deadline for priority admission consideration is January 15. The Micron School of Materials graduate program adheres to the Council of Graduate Schools Resolution.

We do accept applications throughout the year but to receive priority consideration for graduate assistantship funding for the fall semester and an admission recommendation before April 15, all application materials must be on file by January 15.
