Graduation 2020

All 24 MSE faculty and staff congratulate our 2020 BS, MEng, MS, and PhD graduates.

See our seniors, enjoy the SOE commencement speech by our very own Riley Blumenfield, and read about other successes by our students and alumni.

And of course there’s well-deserved pomp and circumstance to celebrate our Masters and PhD graduates as well.


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:

  • All summer 2020 classes will be conducted online—this year MSE is offering MSE2101 and MSE2102 (Introductions to Materials I and II).
  • 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, staff, and researchers remain working from home for the foreseeable future, so the best way to contact MSE is by email.
  • A phased transition back into our labs begins soon, following guidance from the state and the university.
