What to Expect
In your undergraduate program, you’ll master the foundations of polymers through 90 credit hours and specialize in one of two tracks: traditional polymer engineering or biomaterials. You’ll then build on the basics in your 30-credit-hour graduate program, choosing the courses and thesis approach that best fit your interests and goals. Here, you can study everything from nano-materials and chemistry to self-assembly and fire science.
Typically, Case Western Reserve undergraduate students apply to the integrated BS/MS program in spring of their junior year and, if accepted, determine up to nine credit hours of graduate-level courses that can count toward both degrees.
By doubling up nearly 10 credit hours, you’ll double the power of your tuition. Plus, you’ll gain an advanced understanding of macromolecular science and engineering that is necessary for success.
Nearly ¾ of our undergraduate polymer majors go on to pursue an advanced degree. Why not get a jumpstart—and save time and money—with our integrated studies option?
