Advanced Materials Engineering Track

Program Description

This track leads to a Master of Science degree in Advanced Materials Engineering (MS-MatE) at UTSA. The College of Engineering has recently established a new interdisciplinary graduate program, Master of Science in Advanced Materials Engineering (MS-MatE). The new graduate degree program is administered across departmental boundaries within the College of Engineering. It is designed to attract and accommodate applicants with either science or engineering college degrees wishing to study materials engineering to enhance their job positions or research/leadership potentials.

The goal of the Master of Science in Advanced Materials Engineering program is to train graduate students with state-of-the-art technical knowledge and skill sets necessary for independent critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making to address multidisciplinary problems in materials engineering.  The degree program also provides students with opportunities in taking multidisciplinary courses from within the College of Engineering and from other colleges at UTSA in order to enhance students' leadership, problem solving, and/or entrepreneurship skills.  The new graduate degree program will be administered across departmental boundaries within the College of Engineering.
