The field of Materials Science and Engineering (MS&E) is expanding into a period of unprecedented intellectual challenges and opportunities. Nanostructured materials, Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and devices, carbon nanotubes (CNT), diamond coatings prepared at low pressure and low-temperature, Li-ion battery materials and high-temperature superconductivity are just a few examples of advances in this field. Materials Science and Engineering is crucial to the survival of U.S. industry and the strength of our economy and security.
The master's program in materials science and engineering trains graduates to design materials for specialized uses, making materials reliable and useful to mankind. OSU offers courses in areas such as materials for energy technologies, biomedical engineering, advanced composites and nanostructured materials, materials for microelectronics and MEMS.
More information on this field of study is available on the OSU School of Materials Science and Engineering website.
