Founded in 1998, The Master’s Industrial Internship Program at the University of Oregon trains students in the real-world knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in the industrial research laboratory - and at the interview table. We believe an advanced degree should help you land a job and prepare you for a successful career. It turns out many companies agree with us!

Three program tracks:
PV & Semiconductor Device Processing
Optical Materials & Devices
Polymer Science

Wyatt Mosely and Libby Seidell share a laugh during the 2018 UO Spring Commencement ceremonies at the UO. Families and friends joined graduates as they made their way out into the world of science. Find out where they went!


Students share their perspectives on why the master's program is a good fit for them.

Professional Development is a key component of the master's program.
