Undergraduate MSE Program

Undergraduate MSE Program

The University of Arizona's department of Materials Science and Engineering is set apart from other MSE departments in that it allows and encourages undergraduates to utilize industry-level equipment from electron microscopy to spectroscopy and other materials characterization tools.

Training with this equipment is offered through classes within the department and can be taken as electives.

Technical electives are offered within the required coursework to allow MSE students to specialize in specific areas, such as:

  • optical materials
  • physical metallurgy
  • ceramics
  • polymers
  • biomaterials
  • cultural materials and restoration

During an undergraduate career in MSE, students are offered many opportunities to get involved in research.
