College of Engineering

This minor is offered by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and is designed for engineering and science students with interests in materials science and engineering.

Materials concerns are critical to engineering design and analysis and new materials are needed for microelectronic packages, biomedical applications, super-conducting films, tool bits, cutting tools, construction, fuel-efficient engines and other industrial and scientific applications. This minor provides the academic background to understand materials design, selection and processing.

Students are required to complete a minimum of 15 credit hours of materials-related courses that complement their degree programs. Advisers are also available in Rhines Hall, Room 108.
