Materials Science & Engineering

Preparing Today’s Engineers for Tomorrow’s Challenges

The interdisciplinary nature of materials science demands that today’s engineers be equipped to assume leadership roles in a wide range of fields—and be prepared to cross boundaries between traditional areas in order to take on new and critical challenges.

Students in the Materials Science & Engineering graduate program benefit from WPI’s world-renowned faculty and cutting-edge research opportunities. They also learn by doing, with our hands-on approach to education, and they get the advantage of top laboratory facilities in Washburn Shops and Stoddard Laboratories.
