The Materials Science and Engineering Program at the University of Minnesota is accredited by the Engineering
Accreditation Commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org).
The department graduates about 15-20 bachelors in Materials Science and Engineering each year. In addition to
hands-on computer and experimental laboratories, about one-third of the students have had on-campus research
experience with faculty by the time of graduation, and another one-third have had technical experience in
industry through part-time jobs, internships or co-op programs in Materials Science and Engineering. Our
graduates, with their solid engineering skills, analytical minds, and training in problem-solving are a
"can-do" bunch who go on to many sectors of industry, to graduate school, or to medical or law careers.
