The University of Notre Dame’s interdisciplinary Materials Science and Engineering graduate program is off to a fast start. This distinctive program leverages materials expertise from seven departments and programs in the Colleges of Engineering and Science to open new doors for graduates in industry, government, and academic careers.
One year into the program, two students from the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering have defended their dissertations (under Professor Svetlana Neretina). This student achievement underscores how central materials research is to Notre Dame and brings new recognition to the University's historic expertise in materials science and engineering. Today, 28 students are enrolled in the materials graduate program.
Thanks are due to the more than 70 Notre Dame faculty devoted to making this program happen. We are excited about all the progress we have made together, and appreciate your support in recruiting more students for next year.
