Our active materials research community encompasses departments in the Colleges of Science and Engineering.
Interactions extend to local companies such as Hewlett-Packard and Intel. Through interactions with the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute, students can join a vibrant innovation community. Unique education, internship, and funding opportunities support the successful translation of basic research to commercial products. Students can earn an MS degree in materials science engineering (MSE) en route to a Ph.D. in chemistry, pursuing a Ph.D. degree in materials science is an additional option.
