Degree Requirements

Students who lack appropriate undergraduate preparation for the program may be admitted and required to make up deficiencies by taking a program of bridge courses which is designed in consultation with the graduate advisor. These courses are taken in addition to the degree requirements and may include undergraduate courses.

Candidates must complete a minimum of 30 credits, including 18 credits of required materials science courses and 12 credits in an area of specialization, which are selected in consultation with the program director or graduate advisor.

Seminar

In addition to the minimum 30 degree credits required, all students who receive program or research-based awards must enroll each semester in MTSE 791 Graduate Seminar.
