The Ph.D. Program in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is the first such program on the Tuskegee University campus. Building upon excellence in teaching and research, the Ph.D. program is designed to serve the emerging multi-disciplinary challenges of science and technology. The program is spearheaded by the Center for Advanced Materials (T-CAM), which is the largest multi-disciplinary research facility on the Tuskegee University campus. A broad spectrum of areas connected with materials science and engineering are open for Ph.D. level research. T-CAM has well established research funding from federal agencies including the DoD - Army, Navy and Air Force, NASA,NSF, EPSCoR, Boeing, Lockheed, and the U. S. Army and Missile Aviation Command. The Center has been contributing to basic and applied research in materials science and engineering related areas and is acclaimed nationally and internationally for over a decade. Abouttwenty faculty members from various disciplines of Aerospace, Electrical, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics,Mathematics and Computer Science are part of the Ph.D. program. T-CAM possesses state-of-the-art facilities in all aspects of materials research - synthesis and chemical analysis, processing/manufacturing, performance evaluation and modeling of advanced materials and structures.( In addition, various supporting laboratories with specialized facilities including - Semiconductor Facility, Laser Laboratory, and other related disciplines are closely integrated with the Ph.D. program). The faculty members are involved with both basic and applied research related to current interests to a variety of defense and commercial areas. The Ph.D. program is designed such that students may join either upon completion of the Baccalaureate or the Masters degree in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or Mathematics.
