Materials Science Minor
The departments of Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering Sciences offer the minor in Materials Science, which can be combined with majors in any of the three areas. For advice, contact the chair of Engineering Sciences, Professor Erland Schulson.
Chemistry (2 courses)
- CHEM 5-6: General Chemistry
Physics (2 courses)
- PHYS 13: Introductory Physics I
- PHYS 14: Introductory Physics II
Core Course (1 course)
- ENGS 24: Science of Materials
Required Course (choose 1 course)
- PHYS 76: Methods of Experimental Physics
- ENGS 137: Methods of Materials Characterization
Electives (choose 2 courses, each from a different group)
- Group 1
- ENGS 131: Science of Solid State Materials
