Macromolecular Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary graduate program that provides the academic and research basis for studies in the science and technology of synthetic and natural macromolecules. Such large molecules exhibit unusual and specific properties as compared to small molecules and a large field has developed in unraveling the scientific foundations of this behavior, both in the synthetic and the biological areas.

The Program at UM is one of the very few where students can achieve competence in both the traditional discipline of their choice and the interdisciplinary field of Macromolecular Science and Engineering. The faculty members are drawn from various departments, thus making the Program a truly cooperative and interdisciplinary endeavor.
