Advancing the Future
Materials science is an interdisciplinary field involving the properties of matter and its applications to various areas of science and engineering. This scientific field investigates the relationship between the structure of materials at atomic or molecular scales and their macroscopic properties. Since this field incorporates elements from a variety of different fields, the interdisciplinary Materials Science program is a collaboration between numerous departments at Colorado School of Mines.
The interdisciplinary graduate program exists to educate students with at least a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering or science in the diverse field of materials science. This diversity includes the four key foundational aspects of materials science—materials properties including characterization and modeling, materials structures, materials synthesis and processing and materials performance—as applied to a variety of materials (i.e., metals, ceramics, polymers, electronic materials and biomaterials). The materials science graduate program is responsible for administering MS (thesis and non-thesis) and PhD Degrees in materials science.
