Additional Information

  • Current master’s students wishing to move to a doctoral degree program in this same graduate program will not be required to submit a new application.
  • Oral English skills are very important. Final decisions on admission of non-native speakers may be contingent on a Skype interview with a member of the Graduate Committee.
  • Admission into the doctoral degree program may be either directly from an undergraduate degree or a Master's degree.
  • MS students do not usually receive financial support by the School of Materials Engineering. Students wishing to obtain an MS on the way to the Ph.D. should apply to the Ph.D. program, instead. MS seeking students funded by industry, government, or self-supported can apply.
  • Professional MS degree option is completely self-funded and students cannot transfer to another degree. Students must complete degree and then re-apply for PhD.
