Thanks to Tanushree for postingĀ  the University rankings for Material Science engineering programs in USA at Universities for GRE Score 1340

I will try my best to help you. I have joined the MS program in Materials Engineering in University of Houston. I have got financial aid in the form of RA. Here is a list of universities with their ranking in Materials Engineering program

Note About University Rankings

  1. Hi, i scored 300/340 (V-142, Q-158) and wants to do MS in material science and engineering . Pl tell me in which universities i should apply.
    Research paper : 01
    CGPA : 8.38

  2. hey…
    can u suggest me the universities that offer masters in materials sciences/nanotechnlogy
    my gre score is 1110 with acads-69.5

    plz revert back.

  3. these all university ar very high ranked and even they want high score + great academics + top class projects…They are high ranked university not only in material even in anothers different research era also.. dont be confuse…………..

  4. hi….
    i am B.Tech from IIT Roorkee, Materials & Metallurgical Engineering ……..
    i was the tooper with 83%………
    have 8 years of experience in core metallurgical area……
    my gre score is 1160( verbal-360 , quant-800)……..
    plz tell me what are my chances of getting a admission in us universities for MS and where…….

  5. dear sir/madam

    i am graduted (M.Sc) in material science and engineering from Ferdowsi university of Mashhad/Iran.i want to pass Ph.D career in Kentucky university.please help me aand give me more information and reguirements

  6. hi,
    i really need the list of top 10 universities in USA and in the world for material science for M.S. in 2010.Please do help me out.Thanks in anticipation.

  7. Hi…Hi… I'm doin my masters in Materials Engg in IISc bangalore. I'm the

    topper here with gpa 7.6 out of 8. Did in NIT jaipur with 8.91

    gpa(one of the toppers)…I'm a GE foundation scholar for 2008-2010

    period. I've done a social project with harvard students and IIT

    students during u.g days for 2 months in a rural village(if it

    helps…) I have a world conference proceeding while in U.G(i was the

    chief author)and various presentations at IIT's and IEI meetings.GRE:

    1st attemp: 1340 (verbal:590, quant:750)…2nd attempt score: 1400

    (verbal:610, quant:790)… I'd be getting promising reco's from 2

    profs here at IISc and an u.g(NIT jaipur) prof of mine. As a matter of

    fact, I dont have an original research paper yet, though I have

    research experience from my projects at IISc(on-going) and NIT jaipur

    (U.g) and IIT-Madras summer project.

    I'm aiming for cornegie melon for PhD mainly in computational materials Science. What's my chance of making it?

    or say, a higher ranked university like UC berkeley?

    How should I choose the colleges i need to apply(i mean do i have to

    do it the way people generally do? 3 from top 10, 3 from 10-20, 3 from

    later or something like that?) or do u advise me another way?

    and how many should i end up applying in what all regimes to have a fair chance in making it?

  9. Dear sir/madam,

    This year I graduated from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Dhaka, Bangladesh) with a Masters degree in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering. I am considering applying to your university for coming academic year 2010_2011 for working towards my PhD degree in the field of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering department. Currently i am working as an Assistant Manager in Sylhet Gas Field Ltd.(oil and gas production company of Petrobangla) from 01/07/2009. Before I was worked as a production engineer in Bashundhara Steel Complex Ltd. (An Enterprise of Bashundhara Group, steel making industry) from 15.02.2007 to 30.06.2009.

    I’m looking for scholarship to pursue my PhD. I would be grateful you could provide me the details regarding to financial help (it may be even work & study program).

    Waiting for your kind reply.

    Your’s sincerely
