Materials Science and Engineering
Materials Science & Engineering offers interdisciplinary programs leading to the degrees of master of science and doctor of philosophy. These programs train the student broadly in materials science and engineering with a foundation in one of the traditional disciplines of chemistry, engineering, geology or physics, and they also require investigation in a specialized area. The PhD places major emphasis on training in depth, with the expectation of a significant original contribution to the specialized area. This program is a joint effort of the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Harpur College of Arts and Sciences.
