The Minor in Materials Science and Engineering is open to STEM and engineering majors with a minimum GPA of 2.5. You may add the minor in your student center using the “add/update major/minor” task selection. If you need assistance, please contact Pamela Ross.
- Successfully complete 18 hours of materials-based coursework.
- At least 12 hours of the coursework must come from courses with the prefix EMA and/or EGN.
- A minimum grade of "C" or better must be achieved for all courses in the minor.
- A bachelor's degree must be completed for the degree to be awarded.
Upon completion of the minor requirements, a notation in the memorandum section of the student's transcript will indicate the completion of the minor.
As a student, you will learn and work in the following MSE centers and facilities:
- Advanced Materials Processing and Analysis Center — AMPAC is home to two university-wide user facilities that enable cutting-edge research. Facilities feature ultramodern equipment for characterization and processing and provide students training and education opportunities. Collaborations with other universities, government agencies, and private industry are encouraged.
- Materials Characterization Facility — The user-friendly facility occupies 7,000 square feet and is supported by three research engineers and a faculty coordinator. It houses an impressive array of materials characterization equipment.
- Advanced Microfabrication and Clean Room Facility — The 3,000-square-foot space supports research activities including miniaturization, nanomaterials fabrication and applied acoustoelectronics technology. The clean rooms contain assorted lithography and device fabrication equipment.
