Joint PhD in Materials Science and Engineering

Tufts faculty have strengths in soft, structural, electronic, computational, and nano materials. From drug delivery to semiconductors to nano-enabled membranes for water treatment, materials science and engineering at Tufts offers graduate students a wide array of opportunities to study and develop materials that will change the world.

The PhD program in Materials Science and Engineering at Tufts uses the Joint-PhD model, where a student has a "home" department in one of the affiliated departments. The student must be admitted to the home department first and then apply to join the joint-PhD program. For those in the Mechanical Engineering program, all of the requirements for the Mechanical Engineering PhD as well as those for MSE must be met. The degree awarded will be a "Joint PhD in Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering."
