Many of the grand challenges that face society today require new and improved materials to help provide solutions, and this need is driving a resurgence in the importance and relevance of education and research in materials science and engineering (MSE).

Duke University is a premier institution for materials science and engineering education, research, and innovation.

We are a multidisciplinary university graduate degree program that takes advantage of these strengths across Duke to train the next generation of materials scientists and engineers — by transcending the traditional boundaries of materials classifications and scientific disciplines.
