UConn MSE has big plans for 2023-2024. Now that we’ve moved into the brand new Institute of Materials Science, our almost 300 students, researchers, and faculty are excited to keep building on our already strong program. That includes more than $60M in active research leveraging our particular expertise in metallurgy, additive manufacturing, functional and biomedical materials, materials for energy and sustainability, and novel materials modelling, processing, and characterization.
Don’t wait to join our undergraduate program, featuring more hands-on lab classes than any other engineering degree. Earn a PhD, or a part-time masters degree. Benefit from our industry partnerships, exceptional labs and facilities, and renowned faculty. Be an active member of the community we’re establishing here in Science1.
Invent, apply, and manufacture the materials which make tomorrow better. Materialize Your Future.
