Materials Science and Engineering during the Coronavirus Outbreak

MSE students, staff, and faculty have been as productive as ever despite the challenges of Covid. Following appropriate safety protocols, our research labs are operational, our students are publishing, our faculty are winning major research grants and awards, and last year we were the only SOE program to offer in-person labs to every level of our undergraduate students.

For Fall of 2021:

  • Our curriculum will primarily return to in-person instruction, except for certain electives where distance education technologies are preferred such as those designed to appeal to the substantial materials and manufacturing industries in our region.
  • MSE students, faculty and staff are expect to be in-person, though with increased flexibility when working from home can be just as productive.

Until Augst 15, most office functions will continue to be performed remotely, so the information below is the best way to reach us. We thank you for your patience.
