Minor in Materials Science Engineering

Minor in Materials Science Engineering

The interdisciplinary field of materials science and engineering has become critical to many emerging areas of advanced technology and their applications. As a result, there are needs and opportunities for engineers and scientists with education and training in materials science and engineering. The goal of the minor in Materials Science Engineering (MSE) is to provide students at UCI with such education and training that will enable them, upon graduation, to not only participate in projects or programs of an interdisciplinary nature but also address challenging societal needs and complex technological advances.

Admission. Admission in the MSE minor requires a minimum 2.5 overall UCI GPA. Students must apply through the Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science. Students are required to complete all prerequisites for required courses and selected electives. In particular, students must complete the following courses before applying: Chemistry 1A and Chemistry 1LE; Mathematics 2D, 2J, 2E, 3D; Physics 7C, 7LC; and Physics 7D, 7LD.
