Coterminal B.S./M.S. Program in Materials Science and Engineering

Stanford undergraduates who wish to continue their studies for the Master of Science degree in Materials Science and Engineering through the coterminal program may apply for admission after they have earned 120 units toward graduation (UTG) as shown on the undergraduate unofficial transcript. Applicants must submit their application no later than eight weeks before the start of the proposed admit quarter. The application must give evidence that the student possesses the potential for strong academic performance at the graduate level. Scores from the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) General Test must be reported before action can be taken on an application.

Materials science is a highly integrated and interdisciplinary subject, and so applications from students of any engineering or science undergraduate major are encouraged.

Information and other requirements pertaining to the coterminal program may be obtained from the department's student services office in Durand 115.

University requirements for the coterminal M.A. are described in the "Coterminal Bachelor's and Master's Degrees" section of this bulletin. For University coterminal degree program rules and University application forms, also see
