Penn Engineering is a great place to get a master’s in Materials Science. The opportunities to take classes taught by world-class faculty, get involved in cutting edge research, and attend seminars from leaders in the field allow us to customize our experience. The campus is always buzzing with activity, and we’re constantly surrounded by students and faculty who are truly passionate about their work. Moreover, Penn’s alumni network and Career Services provide the support we need to land jobs at the forefront of our field. Choosing Penn was really a no-brainer.

More than 250 years ago, Benjamin Franklin, founder of the University of Pennsylvania, envisioned an academic institution where classical learning would be united with a sound practical education in the arts and sciences. In Ben's own words, students ought to receive everything that is practical and everything that is ornamental. Today Penn, the oldest university in the nation, is fulfilling that vision by preparing students for a technological world, a world where leadership goes to those who have learned how to combine the practical and the ornamental.
