UCLA-Wide Graduate Admissions Requirements

Degree-Specific Admissions Requirements

In addition to the University's minimum requirements and those listed above, all applicants are expected to submit a resume and a statement of purpose.

M.S.: Applicants to the M.S. program in Materials Science and Engineering are required to hold a bachelor's degree in materials science, metallurgy, or ceramics. Applicants who have a bachelor's degree in chemistry, physics, or other engineering disciplines may be admitted if an introductory materials course has been taken or remedial work comparable to an introductory course is performed.

Applicants not having adequate preparation may be admitted provisionally and may be required to undertake certain remedial coursework which cannot be applied toward the degree. On arrival at UCLA, an adviser helps the student plan a program which can remedy any such deficiencies.

Ph.D.: Applicants to the Ph.D. program should have completed the requirements for the master's degree with at least a 3.25 grade-point average and have demonstrated creative ability. Normally the M.S. degree is not required for admission to the Ph.D. program.
