About this program

MSE in Materials Science

Everything around us is made of materials. With a master’s degree in Materials Science from Johns Hopkins, you can be at the center of creating the next generation of materials and material systems that power modern innovations and drive our society. Complement your textbook knowledge with collaborative interactions with the faculty who are researching the applications of materials that impact our society, including the development of longer-lasting batteries for electrical vehicles, the use of stem cell technology to reverse engineer the blood-brain barrier, the creation of nanostructures to improve power grids and more.

The Materials Science and Engineering Department at the Whiting School of Engineering (WSE) of Johns Hopkins University offers full-time day school programs at the Homewood campus in Baltimore.

Admission requirements

  • Except as provided herein, applicants must be in the last semester of undergraduate study at or hold a bachelor’s or graduate degree from the US regionally accredited college or university. While there is no automatic prohibition of the admission of students from the US nationally accredited colleges or universities, EP retains the right to assess an applicant’s courses and/or degrees earned from one of those institutions to determine their academic readiness for the Program. Applicants who hold degrees from international institutions are encouraged to apply and must meet requirements found on EP’s International Applicants webpage.
  • Admitted students typically have earned a grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (B or above) in the latter half of their undergraduate studies (when reviewing an application, the candidate’s academic and professional background will be considered).
  • Applicants must submit official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended.
  • No GRE is required. Should you choose to submit scores, use code 4655.

About the Program

The Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) in Materials Science degree program gives students the unique opportunity to work in the industry of their choice while earning full-time pay as a participant in the Institute for NanoBioTechnology Industry Master’s Co-Op Program.

Study and conduct research on the connections between the structure of materials and their properties, how particular properties can be achieved through suitable processing, and the applications of materials to modern technologies.

This highly collaborative and hands-on program gives you the opportunity to:

  • Master the connections between materials’ structure and performance.
  • Learn how newly engineered materials can be used in modern technologies.
  • Apply the structure, thermodynamics, and kinetics of materials to the design of new engineering materials and to the development of advanced characterization methods.
  • Be prepared to lead with confidence with the knowledge you can incorporate immediately into your work.
  • Enjoy the flexibility of learning while working.

A focus area/concentration can be selected but is not required. A concentration will appear on your transcript to indicate an area of extra focus as part of the degree. 

  • Biotechnology
  • Nanomaterials
  • Nanotechnology
