- Undergraduate programs
Materials Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary field that combines engineering, chemistry, and physics to solve real-world problems that impact nearly every industry. At CMU, our objective is to prepare students to become leaders with the ability to adapt to the ever-changing technologies facing today's engineers.
- Master of Science programs
MSE offers seven different areas of study: Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering, dual degree master of science programs, Master of Science in Engineering and Technology Innovation Management, Master of Science in Computational Materials Science and Engineering, Master of Science in Materials Science, Master of Science in Additive Manufacturing affiliated program, and Master in Energy Science and Technology and Policy.
- Doctor of Philosophy program
The Doctoral degree emphasizes the creation of new knowledge through extensive independent research, including the formulation of hypotheses, the interpretation of phenomena revealed by research, and the extraction of general principles upon which predictions can be made.

Engineering faculty engage in industrial decarbonization research partnership
MSE’s Chris Pistorius and EPP’s Valerie Karplus and Paulina Jaramillo, alongside Assistant Professor of Economics and Public Policy Edson Severnini, joined collaborators in Germany to begin an international research partnership.
McHenry breaks down superconductors
MSE’s Michael McHenry was quoted in Built In about the unique properties of superconductors, which are capable of conducting electricity without losing energy. McHenry said, in part, that paired electrons “cooperate with a material’s vibrating atoms” to boost conductivity and avoid resistance.
Dickey uses novel methods to analyze ferroelectric materials
MSE Head Elizabeth Dickey and her team of researchers are collaborating with groups at Penn State University to study ferroelectric materials. Together, the groups are combining their skills to analyze the structure of alloyed aluminum nitride films using transmission electron microscopy.
