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 MSE Minor two semesters before graduation
  • An approved Plan of Study one semester before graduation
  • MSE 2001 (or 2101) and 2002 (or 2102)
  • 9 credits – any classes from MSE 3000-level courses, MSE 4000-level courses (but not more than 3 credits of independent study or directed research), BME 3700 and CHEG 3156
    • Note that BME 3700 and CHEG 3156 are mandatory for minor. You can take 9 credits from MSE 3000 / 4000 level courses only.
    • When a student contacts an instructor to get a permission number, please share your program (major, double major, and minor) and your academic year (frosh, sophomore, junior, and senior) with the instructor. Permission numbers will be released as soon as possible during advising season, sometimes necessarily extending even to the beginning of the semester, to best accommodate our students’ needs, seating capacity restrictions, etc.

Nanomaterials Minors

This minor offers the fundamentals and understanding in nanoscale materials physics and chemistry, synthesis and characterization techniques, nanodevices fabrication, testing and applications, which are derived from the latest progress and documentation in the nanoscience and nanotechnology. It requires the completion of 15 credits including the following:

Note: Group II courses cannot be simultaneously used towards the Materials Science & Engineering Minor and the Nanomaterials Minor.
