Admission is open to students with undergraduate baccalaureate degrees not only in the field of Materials Science and Engineering but also in other engineering and science fields. Students are encouraged to apply early in the fall term. Admission is based upon prior performance and projected success as indicated by undergraduate scholastic performance, industrial work experience, and recommendations from those most familiar with the student's record. Admission is to the master's programs and only those with exceptional backgrounds are considered for direct admission to the PhD program.
