  • MA 530 Applied Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists II

Plus four elective courses, including substantial laboratory research if the Master’s thesis is chosen.

Master of Engineering and Master of Science in Materials Science
The Master of Engineering or Master of Science requires 30 graduate credits in an approved plan of study. The study plan consists of four (4) core courses and six (6) elective courses, including special research project or substantial laboratory research if Master’s thesis is pursued. The core courses are as follows:

  • MA 530 Applied Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists II
  • MT 521 Chemical and Materials Thermodynamics
  • MT 601 Structure and Diffraction
  • MT 602 Principles of Inorganic Materials Synthesis

Master of Engineering or Master of Science program also participates in two interdisciplinary degree concentration offerings jointly with other engineering or science departments: Nanotechnology and Microelectronics and Photonics Science & Technology. Each concentration has its own set of required courses and electives where applicable, in addition to the above core courses.

For Nanotechnology concentration, students are required to take the following two courses:

  • NANO 525 Techniques of Surface and Nanostructure Characterization
  • NANO 600 Nanoscale Science and Technology

With the balance of the electives in other relevant nanotechnology electives, including related special research project or substantial laboratory research if Master’s thesis is pursued.

For Microelectronics and Photonics Science & Technology concentration, students are required to take the following course:

  • MT 507 Introduction to Microelectronics and Photonics

In addition, at least three courses with EE and PEP prefixes must be chosen from the following electives.

  • CPE 690 Introduction to VLSI Design
  • EE 626 Optical Communication Systems
  • EE 685 Physical Design of Wireless Systems
  • MT 562 Solid State Electronics for Engineeing II
  • MT 595 Reliability and Failure of Solid State Devices
  • MT 596 Microfabrication Techniques
  • PEP 503 Introduction to Solid State Physics
  • PEP 515 Photonics I
  • PEP 516 Photonics II
  • PEP 561 Solid State Electronics for Engineering I
