Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Program

UC San Diego’s campus-wide Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Program is an important part of the Institute for Materials Discovery and Design. This program is administered by the Jacobs School of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, under the leadership of professor Prabhakar Bandaru.

The Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Program includes more than 90 professors from across the UC San Diego campus including faculty from Bioengineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, NanoEngineering, and Structural Engineering from the Jacobs School of Engineering; Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Physics from the Division of Physical Sciences; as well as faculty from the Division of Biological Sciences; the Scripps Institution of Oceanography; and the UC San Diego School of Medicine.

 

New educational resources

Through the Institute for Materials Discovery and Design, UC San Diego faculty are developing new training programs and curricula in data analytics and machine learning applied to materials science and engineering.

In addition, UC San Diego faculty affiliated with IMDD will develop nano-analytical / nano-fabrication training programs associated with the Nano3 facility.

 

Graduate fellowships

The IMDD is also working to establish new graduate fellowships in materials science through collaboration with industry, foundation and community partners.
