OSU's Master of Science in materials Science and Engineering program is located at
OSU-Tulsa and places the College of Engineering, Architecture and Technology in a
unique position to conduct world-class education, research and Technology development
and transfer in advance materials of strategic importance to our nation. The field
of Materials Science and Engineering is expanding into a period of unprecedented intellectual
challenges and opportunities, and is crucial to the survival of US industry and the
strength of our economy and security. This program will train our next generations
to design materials for specialized uses, making materials reliable and useful to
Four research focus areas have been identified by industry leaders in and around Tulsa,
Okla., with Materials Science and Engineering as the overall umbrella. These focus
areas include Materials for Energy Technologies, Bio-Materials for Medical Technologies,
Advanced Materials for Aerospace and Materials for Electronics and Control Technologies.
Tulsa-based industry leaders also identified "materials" as the "core" discipline.
