We offer the following graduate degrees through Northwestern University’s Graduate School:
Programs for MS Students
The certificate in integrated computational materials engineering builds on Northwestern’s unique research and education achievements in computational materials design and the new education infrastructure of our doctoral cluster in predictive science and engineering design.
Programs for PhD Students
PhD students have the option of completing one of two programs: The biotechnology training program or the management for scientists and engineers certificate program.
