Established in 2004, the Micron School of Materials Science and Engineering houses three distinct interdisciplinary graduate degrees: Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Master of Science (MS) and Master of Engineering (MEngr) and three graduate certificate programs. With an interdisciplinary base of faculty from backgrounds including, but not limited to: Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Civil Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, students enrolled in the graduate programs benefit from their diversity of background and the interdisciplinary nature of the field. Governance of the graduate and certificate programs is based upon participating faculty from constituent departments and overseen by the School.
Materials Science and Engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field that rests between basic science and engineering. Because of this overlap, graduates develop collaborative skills that transcend disciplinary boundaries. They also develop technical skills and fundamental knowledge that make them highly attractive to the regional, national, and international workforce.
