Materials science M.Eng. offers real-world experience
Ajay Krishnan knew exactly what he wanted to get with his advanced degree: a high-quality job.
“I was pretty sure that I would be heading to industry after completing a master’s degree and getting some experience,” said Krishnan, who received his bachelor of technology degree in metallurgical and materials engineering from the National Institute of Technology Surathkal, India, in 2016.
When the class valedictorian started scouting programs that featured an industry focus, Cornell’s new master of engineering (M.Eng.) in materials science and engineering (MSE) program stood out – even from 8,000 miles away.
“One thing that appealed to me about the program at Cornell was the fact that there was a lot of flexibility with regard to selecting your courses,” Krishnan said. “You could tailor your curriculum by speaking with your adviser, you could take courses at Johnson (Graduate School of Management), which is something that really appealed to me.”
