Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering
Tufts offers a program leading to the MS degree in Materials Science and Engineering, administered through the School on Engineering. The Master of Science degree requires 30 credits and all courses must be at the 100 level or above; grades in all courses must be B- or better.
At least five courses must be taken from a published list of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) approved courses in addition to the completion of one of the listed MSE core courses.
Students wishing for their MS degree to have the designation of "with thesis" must sign up for MS thesis credits, up to 12 credits may count for the degree. This course takes the form of a creative thesis work, written and defended orally, and performed under the supervision of a faculty member.
