Graduate Program

The metallurgical and materials engineering program offers MS, ME and PhD degrees. The MS and PhD degrees require a thesis. The ME degree is course work plus a project. Students are not normally accepted to the MS or PhD programs unless funding is available from an outside research sponsor. Colorado School of Mines does not offer direct support for students pursuing an ME degree.

The Materials Science program is an interdisciplinary program involving the faculty from Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Engineering and Physics. MS and PhD degrees are offered.

CWJCR is interested in you

Our center offers master of engineering (ME), master of science (MS) and doctor of philosophy degrees in metallurgical engineering or materials science with an emphasis in welding and joining metallurgy. The CWJCR promotes experimental and theoretical research in many welding-related fields. All students in the CWJCR are trained in practical arc welding techniques and become well versed in many other welding processes.

We  encourage professional development and community involvement. All graduate students in CWJCR become members of the Mines Student Chapter of the American Welding Society. This allows students to participate in local AWS activities, interact with welding professionals and present at technical conferences. In addition, the center regularly hosts industrial visitors, workshops, trainings, and seminars to promote technology transfer. The CWJCR also partners with high schools to host STEM Outreach visits to promote engineering, metallurgy and welding to young students.
