The University of Texas at Dallas

Richardson, Texas, USA
Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering
Duration1.5-2 Years
LevelMasters Program
  • The Materials Science and Engineering Department involves the study of advanced materials — including metals, semiconductors, composites, polymers, nanomaterials, and biomaterials — and their potential use in various applications
  • Materials science and engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field drawing on many fundamental disciplines to advance the design and discovery of new materials for use in virtually all areas of science, engineering, industry, and society
  • This degree is suitable both for students completing undergraduate study in the areas of materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, chemistry or physics, and also for professional engineers who wish to continue their education
  • The curriculum ensures that students are exposed to a broad knowledge of modern materials science; that they apply their knowledge and analytical skills to create effective and novel solutions to practical problems; and that they communicate and work effectively in a collaborative environment
  • These outcomes prepare graduates for successful careers in many settings and make key contributions in materials science and engineering research
