Doctoral Program                       

Texas State University has made materials science and engineering research, education and commercialization a priority. We recognize that interdisciplinary research in advanced materials is crucial for the discovery of innovative solutions for pressing issues in the areas of energy, environment, health and security. Emerging advanced materials have the potential to dramatically affect all segments of the economy. We also recognize the need to develop the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs to drive economic development, not only in Central Texas, but across the United States, moving new materials quickly into solutions needed today.

The Materials Science, Engineering, and Commercialization (MSEC) program at Texas State is an integrated effort based on the university’s biology, chemistry and biochemistry, physics, engineering, engineering technology and business school programs. The MSEC program’s goal is to train graduate scientists and engineers to perform interdisciplinary research while equipping them to emerge as effective entrepreneurial leaders in the advancement of 21st-century global discovery and innovation.

Program research will have a sustained impact on the Texas economy and is attracting significant federal research funding as well as producing innovative commercial endeavors in civilian, defense and security applications. With a focus on applied research, industrial outreach and entrepreneurial training, Texas State is uniquely positioned in the region to offer this combination of skills — education with relevance.
