The New Mexico Tech Department of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering offers three options for students interested Master’s degrees: 1) Master of Science in Materials Engineering requiring a Thesis; 2) Master of Engineering requiring only course work; and 3) a combined BS/MS degree.

The Materials Engineering Department administers both the Master of Science and the Master of Engineering degree for those students wishing to pursue an advanced degree in Materials Engineering. The Master of Science degree must be earned with a thesis. The Master of Engineering degree is a coursework-only option for students seeking a non-researchbased advanced degree focused on satisfying the needs of practicing engineers.
