What is this MS Program:
This unique program combines intensive lab and course work with professional skills development to prepare you for a 9-month paid internship in industry. Historically, close to 98% of our students successfully complete internships and close to 90% of those receive regular offers within three months of completing their internships.

Why It's Special:

In just over a year, you can gain:

9-months work experience (last year’s average, annualized compensation was about $59,200)

A master's degree in chemistry or applied physics.

A foundation in 1 of 5 focus areas:

  • Optical Materials & Devices
  • Photovoltaic & Semiconductor Device Processing
  • Polymer Science
  • Molecular Probes & Sensors
  • Bioinformatics & Genomics

A professional network that will provide the foundation for a career.
A resume with something on it.
More data about what industry is all about.

Even if you think you want a PhD, this program allows you to gain insight on what the marketplace is looking for - allowing you to be more strategic in choosing research that will allow you to build a marketable skill set and develop the professional skills that will make you more competitive. Regardless of which trail you eventually blaze, this program allows you to do it with more data about the opportunities out there.
