Materials Science and Engineering during the Coronavirus Outbreak

We are all disappointed that we haven’t yet returned to campus, though we’re certainly still active:

  • Calling all graduating UConn seniors: The School of Engineering has announced the 1-year Springboard Graduate Scholarships, a unique opportunity to earn an MEng degree full time with tuition reduced by 65%. MSE has committed to welcoming up to 20 qualified students into this program.
  • MSE faculty, and researchers remain working from home for the foreseeable future, so the best way to contact MSE is by email.

The MSE head office staff are available to help and to answer your questions during the COVID-19 pandemic. The information below is the best way to reach us, since we are working remotely until further notice.  Please note: If you contact us via phone, you will be instructed to leave a voicemail and we will contact you as soon as possible.  We thank you for your patience.
