Field of Study: Ceramic Sciences and Engineering

Introduction

Ceramic sciences and engineering programs teach people how to design ceramic materials for home and industrial use.

 

Overview

Ceramic sciences and engineering programs include topics such as:

  • Non-metallic metals
  • Porcelains
  • Industrial ceramics
  • Ceramic superconductors

Schools
Community colleges and other 2-year schools offer associate degree programs. An associate degree usually takes two years to complete. After earning an associate degree, students can transfer to a college or university for further study.

Very few colleges and universities offer bachelor's degrees in ceramic sciences and engineering. A bachelor's degree usually takes about four or five years of full-time study.

Very few universities offer graduate degrees in ceramic sciences and engineering. A master's degree typically requires two years of study beyond a bachelor's degree. Doctoral (PhD) degree programs usually require two or more years of study beyond the master's degree.
