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
is expanding into a period of unprecedented intellectual challenges, opportunities
and growth. Products created using materials science and engineering research contribute
to the economic strength and security of not only the state, but also the country.
Four research focus areas have been identified by industry leaders in and around Tulsa,
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
at the HRC.

The following are required for completing the graduate application process:
Three recommendation letters
Statement of Purpose clearly indicating the area of interest you are interested in
pursuing as well as whichfaculty member(s) you are interested in working with(preferred maximum one page) based on faculty interests listed on theMSE website.
Resume (preferred maximum of 2 pages)
If you are an international student, the following is also required in addition to
the above material.
TOEFL or IELTS – the Graduate College requires a minimum score of 79 (internet based
test) or 550 (paper-based test) in TOEFL or overall band score of 6.5 or higher in
IELTS. However, if you want to be considered for a teaching or research assistantship,
a score of 26 or higher on the speaking section of the TOEFL, or 8.5 or higher on
the speaking portion of the IELTS is required. If your scores are lower than that,
you will have to take the graduate college administered International Teaching Assistant
English test in order to be officially allowed to work as a graduate teaching assistant.
GRE general test – there are no specific score requirements and will be considered
on a case-by-case basis. As a general guideline, current graduate students have obtained
a score of 305 or higher in verbal and math together, and an analytical writing score
of 2.5 or higher.
Oklahoma State University and Tulsa are especially affordable places for graduate
students. OSU's estimation of a graduate student's annual costs is $18,820 for Oklahoma
residents, $29,150 for out-of-state students, and $34,588 for international students.
