Congratulations on your acceptance to the Materials Science and Engineering program at the University of Colorado!
MSEN 5000 Fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering (Boot Camp) will be offered to new incoming graduate students starting August 7th. It is an intensive 2 week course designed to bring students up to speed in knowledge of key materials science topics prior to the beginning of the fall semester. Boot Camp credits will count toward the breadth elective requirement.
Mandatory orientation will take place during the week of August 21st, 2017. Orientation schedules will be sent out to students in the second week of August.
Course registration for first-year graduate students will be arranged by the program coordinator.
PhD students will be notified of their TA assigments during the week of orientation. Typically, new PhD students will be assigned as a TA for an introductory Chemistry, Physics, or Chemical Engingeering course based on their academic background.
The following links will help prepare you to begin your graduate studies.
