The Science Master's Program prepares graduate students for careers in business, industry, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies by providing them not only with a strong foundation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, but also with research experiences,
internship experiences, and the skills to succeed in those careers.
The program is intended to catalyze the creation of institution-based efforts that can be sustained without additional federal funding.
This program is also intended to encourage diversity in student participation so as to contribute to a broadly inclusive, well-trained science and engineering workforce.
