Welcome to the Tricampus Materials Science PhD program at the University of Alabama!
The Materials Science PhD Program is an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental, and intercampus doctoral program linking the three universities that comprise the University of Alabama System – the University of Alabama (UA), in Tuscaloosa, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), and the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) – through the Tri-Campus Materials Science PhD Program. Students who successfully complete the program receive a PhD degree in Materials Science from the University of Alabama System.
There are many advantages to being a part of a multi-campus program, including the opportunity to participate remotely in courses offered on the other campuses via an internet video connection. Each student’s dissertation committee contains at least one member from one of the other two campuses.
