About

Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Utah combines numerous disciplines, including chemistry, physics and engineering.

Overview

Scientists in this field apply the principles of physics and chemistry to engineering problems in order to design and develop new materials: without materials science and engineering, things like computer chips and solar cells would not exist. In the College of Engineering at the University of Utah, the Materials Science and Engineering degree offers students the unique opportunity to study science as well as engineering. Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, the MSE curriculum consists of courses in nanostructured materials, composites, microsystems design, biomaterials, nuclear materials, and many others. All students complete a capstone design project, preparing them for real-world engineering design and applications. You will leave the U with the technical skills and theoretical knowledge you need to succeed in a variety of science and engineering fields.

The Student Experience

Though not required, MSE students are encouraged to complete academic internships during the course of their program, learning hands-on skills and gaining professional knowledge and experience in the field of MSE. In addition to academic opportunities, students can get involved by joining the Student Advisory Council, offering feedback on MSE faculty hires and program processes. Another excellent involvement opportunity is the Women in Engineering Program. WIE serves the community of women engineer/computer science students in the College of Engineering, providing retention, recruitment, and climate-enhancement activities.

Career Opportunities

MSE students are prepared to pursue a number of careers. Consider work in manufacturing, material production, metallurgy, and research and development. U graduates have found jobs as electrochemists, process engineers, materials engineers, and quality engineers. Employment in allied fields, such as biomedical engineering, project management, and patent examining, are also possible. If you want to continue your education at the graduate level, consider programs and subsequent careers in MSE, mechanical engineering, and biomedical sciences, or become a professor or researcher.
