This minor provides a firm basis for understanding the relationships between the structure of all classes of materials, the processing conditions, and the properties of these materials that are critical to science and engineering. It requires the completion of 15 credits including the following:

  • Application for the minor two semesters before graduation;
  • An approved Plan of Study one semester before graduation;
  • MSE 2001 (or 2101) and 2002 (or 2102);
