Undergraduate Program

The 122-hour undergraduate curriculum is designed to provide students with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the relationships between the structure and properties of materials.

Courses are designed to offer students a broad foundation in chemistry, physics and mathematics. Through coursework, students obtain a foundation in the major areas of materials science and classes of engineering materials. Undergraduate students may design alternative cross-disciplinary sequences, but these sequences must be coordinated and approved by faculty. The senior year includes a series of capstone project courses in which students apply materials science principles to open-ended engineering problems. This problem-solving experience is a valuable exercise in preparing students for an engineering career.

The objective of the materials engineering program is to produce graduates who are engaged in careers through which they apply materials engineering proficiency, effective communication and lifelong learning to provide technical, economic or other benefits to society.
