Materials Science and Engineering (Minor)
The Materials Science and Engineering minor is available to and useful for students in any engineering discipline, as well as students from chemistry, physics, and textiles. It is designed to provide students with the fundamentals necessary for advanced study in Materials Science and Engineering and/or employment in materials-related fields.
Completion of the MSE minor requires a minimum of 15 credit hours, which includes 9 credits of required courses and at least 6 credits of elective courses.
Application for admission to any University minor program is now available via MyPack Portal. Admission will be based on the student’s academic record, and in most cases no longer requires departmental review. Go to Add a Minor to apply. The minor must be completed no later than the semester in which the student expects to graduate from their degree program.
