Master of Science in Materials Engineering (Machine Learning)

The Master of Science in Materials Engineering (Machine Learning) program (available both on-campus and online via DEN@Viterbi) is for students who have an interest in materials engineering that includes machine learning toward materials discovery, design and processing. U.S. industry and cybermanufacturing are rapidly moving toward data-driven materials discovery and development.

Materials engineering combined with machine learning is a novel emerging field that combines materials modeling, simulations and machine learning together into a new paradigm for materials discovery and cybermanufacturing.

Students with a Bachelor of Science in Materials Science, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil or Environmental Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Physics, and Chemistry, as well as in industry employees who plan to apply machine learning to their research and development, are ideal candidates for the program.
