Polymer or Material Science and Engg??


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have been admitted to the PhD in Polymer Sci & Engg program at UMass Amherst and PhD in  Material Sci &  Engg program at Georgia Tech. I would appreciate any pointers about how should I choose between the two programs, both ranked well in respective fields. Most of my research is in the area of synthesis and characterization of polymers but I would like to explore upcoming fields as I work towards my PhD.

Did you visit either of the schools?  If they are both well-ranked, then you should probably choose the place you'll be happiest living.  Regarding rankings though, I believe Georgia Tech is consistently ranked in the Top 10 programs for Materials Science and Engineering, but not UMass Amherst.
