Minor - Materials Science and Engineering

Students enrolled in good standing in an engineering or science major may complete a Minor in Materials Science and Engineering. To be awarded the Minor, which appears on the official diploma and transcript, the student must complete 12 units, all of which must be outside the required courses in the major. The 12 units cannot be counted on both the Minor Form and the Major Form. Either MATE 025 or MATE 115 (or both) must be included in the Minor. The student, in consultation with a Materials Engineering academic advisor, should select 12 units in either the electronic materials option, the structural materials option or the general materials option. Prerequisites for each course must be met unless student receives instructor permission to waive them.

University Graduation Requirements

To be awarded a minor, at least 12 units of coursework must be completely distinct and separate from the coursework in the major (University Policy S16-4).
