The Materials Science and Engineering Bachelor of Science degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Materials, Metallurgical, Ceramics, and Similarly Named Engineering Programs Program Criteria.

Program Education Objectives 

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the materials science and engineering program at the University of California, Davis are to produce graduates that:

  1. Are employed in a professional field related to materials science and engineering, or another area of their choosing, that utilizes their skills as identified in the materials science and engineering student outcomes, and/or are attending graduate or professional programs of study;
  2. Contribute to their profession and society through engineering practice, research and development, teaching and/or education, or in governmental, regulatory or legal aspects

Student Outcomes

Upon graduation, we expect our students to have:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
