Undergraduate Minor in Course 3

Program Requirements

The Minor in Materials Science and Engineering consists of six undergraduate subjects totalling at least 72 units from the list of Required Subjects and Restricted Electives in the departmental program, with at least one of these taken from the list of Restricted Electives. With the approval of the Minor Advisor, it may be possible to substitute one subject taken outside the department for one of the Course III subjects in the Minor Program, provided that the coverage of the substituted subject is similar to one of those in the departmental program.

The department's Minor Advisor will ensure that individual Minor Programs form a coherent group of subjects. Because of the breadth of the undergraduate program in the department, and the variety of possibilities for specialization, the Minor Program is flexible in its composition. Examples of Minor Programs in Materials Science and Engineering, with specializations in the areas of biomaterials, ceramics, electronic materials, metallurgy, and polymers, can be obtained from the department. Other suitable programs may be composed through consultation between students and the Undergraduate Committee.
