Materials Science and Engineering
Students in UT's Department of Engineering Science who choose cluster of Materials Science and Engineering are provided with an educational grounding in the principles common to all materials (structure, thermodynamics, kinetics) before they research a specialized field (biomaterials in immunology, production of latex in ancient meso-America, defect nucleation and growth, to list a few recent projects). DMSE grants the following degrees: Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. Most academic subjects are offered in the fall and spring semesters. Many undergraduates have internship placements in the summers, and most graduate students work full-time on research projects in the summer.
