The Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Program provides students with a strong background in advanced materials synthesis, processing and characterization — both from an experimental and theoretical standpoint. Research areas include biomaterials, catalysts, ceramics, electronic and electrochemical properties and devices, glasses, green engineering and design, interfaces, magnetic materials and devices, materials microstructure/processing, mathematical modeling, mechanical properties and synthesis, metals, microscopy, molecular modeling, nanomaterials, optical properties and devices, polymers, renewable energy, sintering, structural materials, thermochemistry, and thin films. Ph.D. designated emphases are available as specializations in biotechnology, biophotonics, and nuclear science for doctoral students to tailor their research and coursework if desired.
