Program Description:

Materials scientists develop the materials that make everything better! There are few fields of science or engineering, which are not concerned in some way with materials. It has been estimated that the work of one in three engineers is directly related to materials, while over half of all engineers have at least an indirect concern for the properties of materials. The master's degree program in materials science & engineering is especially designed to serve the needs of the technical population in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The program emphasizes advances in existing and emerging technologies in materials science which include: * biomaterials * glasses, ceramics & metallurgy * magnetic and optical materials * nanotechnology * processing and instrumentation * structural materials
