Graduate Studies

Welcome Prospective Graduate Students!


The Materials Science Program (MSP) is a graduate program at the University of New Hampshire.  We offer M.S. and Ph.D. degrees to qualified students interested in interdisciplinary research with an emphasis on the synthesis, characterization and utilization of nanoscale materials. We also offer a 5-year combined B.S. degree in Physics and an M.S. degree in Materials Science.  All MSP students learn about the interplay of structure, processing, characterization, and properties of materials with useful applications. Our fourteen faculty members are active collaborators with research and development groups located around the world, and are experienced in managing research projects with practical results. Graduates of our program work in research, engineering and process development positions in a variety of fields. We welcome inquiries from prospective students and collaborators interested in the materials science program and its resources at UNH.
