Materials Science and Engineering Interdisciplinary Minor
Does the development of materials such as carbon fiber composites, superconductors, batteries, 3D printing, tissue engineering, drug delivery systems, solar cells, nanotubes/nanotechnology, and superalloys interest you? If so, the Materials Science and Engineering Interdisciplinary Minor may be just what you need to help distinguish yourself in the field.
This minor adds easily to the following majors with typically 1 - 3 additional courses:
- Mechanical Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
Companies that often hire materials scientists include: 3M, Medtronic, Intel, Honeywell, Boston Scientific, Seagate, Polar Semiconductor, St. Jude, Hitachi, IBM, AK Steel, Dow Chemical, Applied Materials, DuPont, Goodyear and more.
