The Department of Materials Science and Engineering offers a combined, five-year BS/MS Program intended to foster undergraduate research and to accelerate progress toward a MS degree. Students will apply to the BS/MS Program by April 1 of their junior year and start their graduate-level classes in the senior year of their BS degree. Following their undergraduate coursework, students have one full year to complete their master’s degree. As part of their master's, students will complete either a research thesis or a special project, which they will start in the senior year of their undergraduate career.
Only full-time domestic students currently enrolled as Major Status in the Materials Science and Engineering undergraduate program can be admitted to the combined BS/MS Program. There is a 3.0 GPA requirement. International students are not eligible for the BS/MS degree.
Our students’ success and well-being are paramount in providing a world-class education. Take advantage of the numerous resources and services created to help students of all kinds prosper during their time at the U. For a list of complete resources click here.

Safety and Wellness
Your safety is our top priority. In an emergency, dial 911 or seek a nearby emergency phone (throughout campus). Report any crimes or suspicious people to 801-585-COPS; this number will get you to a dispatch officer at the University of Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS; dps.utah.edu). If at any time, you would like to be escorted by a security officer to or from areas on campus, DPS will help — just give a call. The University of Utah seeks to provide a safe and healthy experience for students, employees, and others who make use of campus facilities. In support of this goal, the University has established confidential resources and support services to assist students who may have been affected by harassment, abusive relationships, or sexual misconduct. A detailed listing of University Resources for campus safety can be found at https://registrar.utah.edu/handbook/campussafety.php Your well-being is key to your personal safety. If you are in crisis, call 801-587-3000; help is close. The university has additional excellent resources to promote emotional and physical wellness, including the Counseling Center (https://counselingcenter.utah.edu), the Wellness Center (https://wellness.utah.edu), and the Women’s Resource Center (https://womenscenter.utah.edu). Counselors and advocates in these centers can help guide you to other resources to address a range of issues, including substance abuse and addiction.
