How To Apply
The Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Program offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. The university requirements for the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials science and Engineering are described in the Graduate Studies section of the UCR General Catalog.
All prospective applicants are required to complete the UCR Electronic Graduate Application, where you can apply, upload and submit your application material. Application progress can be saved and completed at a later time and applicants can review the status of their applications, including materials that have been received by the department. Please be advised to use university email addresses for faculty letters of reference as any email address other than official university contact information will significantly delay the processing of the application.
UC Riverside only accepts electronic/online applications for students applying to the graduate program; however, you may be asked to mail supporting documents.
Be sure to carefully review both the Graduate Division requirements and the department checklist below as the requirements may vary. Only those applicants who have fully completed their applications will be considered for entry into the graduate program.
