In collaboration between the TAMU Materials Science and Engineering program and the Mathematics Department, a new interdisciplinary graduate degree track started in Fall 2006, funded by the National Science Foundation IGERT program. The focus is Next-generation Computational and Analytical Tools for Materials Science. Research themes include design of new materials by nanofabrication, incorporating multiple functionalities, as well as the development of new ways to analyze large-scale materials behavior by incorporating knowledge of atomic- and nanometer-scale properties. The program draws upon the cutting-edge materials research and expertise in multiscale modeling and computational methodology at TAMU and partner institutions. Full academic fellowships, inluding travel expenses, are available for selected students interested in Ph.D. research in this areas.
