Material Science engg.

<p>Which are the top grad schools for Material Science engg.? Can someone also tell that apart from getting into academia is doing masters in this field good as far as getting a decent job is my aim. I have heard that job prospects in material science are relatively lower compared to other disciplines, is it true. And how difficult is it to get into good grad school program if you have a low undergrad gpa (2.68) from a reputed university with a research paper in good material science journal and gre score >1400.</p>
