College of Engineering -- University of Wisconsin-Madison
MASTER OF ENGINEERING
Two-semester graduate training
The Master of Engineering (Polymer Engineering and Science) opened in fall of 1998. This is the first graduate degree labeled Polymer Engineering and Science in the Big 10.
Organized under the Rheology Research Center (RRC) and affiliated departments chemistry, chemical and biological engineering, engineering physics and mechanical engineering, the degree is ideal for students wishing to complete a bachelor of science plus master's degree in a total of five years. Three-quarters of the degree credits required can be taken through the college's Office of Engineering Outreach.
Many corporations sponsoring research at the RRC are also
participating sponsors of the National Technological University. These
corporations encourage employees to take some polymer courses (
Practicing engineers and scientists on a short sabbatical leave from their positions in industry will find the degree an excellent opportunity to advance their knowledge of polymer engineering and science. Foreign exchange students will also be interested in exploring this new degree opportunity.
Eight approved polymer engineering and science courses are required beyond the BS degree. In any given semester, at least six approved courses are offered.
