Requirements


All candidates for the M.Sc. in Materials Science and the M.A.Sc. in Materials Engineering must complete satisfactorily no fewer than two full courses of which no more than a half course may be at the 600-level. All students must complete MATLS *701 Graduate Seminar (Master’s) , as part of these course requirements. All candidates must present a thesis, which embodies the results of original research. It is anticipated that about seventy-five percent of the candidate’s effort will be devoted to the research problem on which the thesis is based.

Students wishing to be transferred to the Ph.D. program prior to the completion of the Master’s degree (see section 2.1.2  of the General Regulations of the Graduate School) must submit a Transfer Report, embodying a statement of progress and achievement in the research to date and a proposal for Ph.D. research. The Transfer Report must be submitted to the Department Chair not later than the completion of five terms after initial registration in the Master’s program. Approval to transfer will be determined through an oral examination.
