What Will I Study?
Students in the Materials Science and Engineering program of Rutgers University study the chemical and physical nature of materials at the macro, micro, and nano scales. Early on you will take courses in crystal chemistry and physics of materials, followed by more focused study of phase equilibria and the measurement of thermal, electrical, and optical properties. The later stages of the curriculum emphasizes the intricate but defining relationships between structure, properties, and processing of engineering materials, with emphasis on applications and materials design. In the senior year, undergraduates design their capstone course in preparation for graduate studies or an industrial career in the materials industry in a diverse range of categories that include research, development, marketing, process engineering, and technical sales.
How Can I Specialize in a Certain Area?
Most importantly, the MSE program encourages a student to select an area of focus in one of the following areas: biomaterials, nanomaterials, metals, polymers, fiber optics, manufacturing, packaging materials, or in an area designed specifically to meet an individual student’s educational and career goals. This specialization is accomplished via the selection of technical electives in the targeted area.
