Master's in Materials Science and Engineering

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.
