Information for Prospective Students

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT has a long tradition of excellence in both graduate research and education, made possible by the combination of outstanding students and faculty. It is no secret that great research cannot happen without great students and the objective of the information in this area of our website is to inform prospective students on the details of applying for admission to the DMSE graduate program: how funding of graduate studies in our department works, how to apply for admission, what to do if you are admitted, what prospective student hosting is and how it works, how to plan for joining MIT if you've accepted our admission offer, and how to find out more about the department.
