Binghamton University '18, '19
BS in chemistry with materials emphasis
MS in materials science engineering

"The unique MSE 4+1 program allows you to come out of school with an MS in a thriving field in only one year, setting you apart from most entry-level applicants. It's becoming increasingly needed for education higher than the BS level to find a good job, which is the main reason I'm pursuing this degree. The brand-new, state-of-the-art Smart Energy building is where all our classes are, which is an added plus to this program."
