The University of Notre Dame has announced a new interdisciplinary doctoral program in materials science and engineering. Students can now earn a distinctive, interdisciplinary degree in materials science and engineering through the College of Engineering and the College of Science.

“Materials science and engineering is central to a number of academic disciplines and careers, making it an important field of study to offer to graduate students at Notre Dame,” said Laura Carlson, vice president and associate provost and dean of the graduate school. “The new materials science and engineering doctoral program will give current students the opportunity to expand on their degrees and also attract prospective graduate students who are determined to build their expertise in the field of materials science and engineering.”

Faculty from the College of Engineering and the College of Science have put together a distinctive program to equip students with the skills needed to address complex problems, such as access to clean water and energy efficiency. The program is committed to building an energetic materials community in which students and faculty collaborate to answer questions at the forefront of science and engineering. 

Additionally, this new program aims to enhance student understanding in materials science and engineering by building on Notre Dame’s background and expertise in this area.
