The Materials Science & Engineering Program (MSEP) is a consortium between the College of Science and the College of Engineering of the University of the Philippines-Diliman that provides students access to gradute studies that lead to a M.S. or PhD degree.
The program leading to the degree of "Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering", or M.S. (MSE), aims to provide students with the basic graduate education that will prepare them for professional careers as materials scientists and engineers in industry, academia. or the public sector.
The program leading to the degree of "Doctor of Philosophy in Materials Science and Engineering", or Ph.D. (MSE), aims to provide students with an advanced graduate education that will prepare them for professional careers as high-level materials scientists and engineeres in industry, academia, or the public sector. The Ph.D. (MSE) Program is specifically designed to enable students to (a) obtain a broad, integrated, interdisciplinary understanding of the four core elements of MSE - the structure/composition, properties, synthesis/processing, and performance of materials - and their interrelationships; (b) acquire a specialized, thorough knowledge of at least one class of materials (e.g., ceramics, polymers, composites, alloys, semiconductors, etc.); and (c) gain competence to undertake original and independent research in materilas science and engineering.
The MSEP office is housed at the Computational Science Research Center.
