Materials Science M.S.

Master’s in Materials Science - Master’s Thesis Option

The Master’s Thesis Option requires a total of 30 credits, which include 24 course credits and 6 thesis credits (MS 899).  At least 6 credits must be at the 900 level.

The following courses are required by all students: (PDF OF MASTERS THESIS REQUIREMENTS)

Master’s in Materials Science - Master’s Project Option

The Master’s Project Option also requires a total of 30 credits, which includes 27 course credits and 3 project credits (MS 898).  The project may be theoretically or experimentally based but will be significantly less intensive than a thesis.  The project will be defined and evaluated by the student’s advisor.  At least 6 credits of coursework must be at the 900 level.  The remaining course requirements are the same as that of the Master’s Thesis Option.
