The graduate program is consistently highly ranked, due in large part to its internationally recognized, diverse faculty, high levels of research funding and a diverse and collegial student body. Women comprise nearly a quarter of the MSE faculty, which is more than twice the national average, and women and underrepresented minorities comprise 35 percent of the graduate class. Faculty members are renowned not only for research accomplishments; they serve as leaders of and hold fellowships in many professional and technical societies. The majority of the 20-member faculty hold joint appointments in other engineering and scientific disciplines, including macromolecular science and engineering, chemical, biomedical and mechanical engineering, physics, biology and chemistry. Faculty involvement throughout the College of Engineering and the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts results in a highly interdisciplinary approach to both coursework and research.
