This minor is designed for students in engineering and science disciplines that desire focused training in the field of materials science with special emphasis on metals. Students completing the minor in materials science-metals will demonstrate the following outcomes:
A proficiency in materials science concepts covering metals and alloys;
The ability to develop and improve new metals/alloys;
The ability to predict and evaluate the performance of metals and alloys.
Given the redundancy in the B.S. metallurgical engineering core curriculum, the minor in materials science-metals is not available to those students who receive a B.S. degree in metallurgical engineering. A minor in materials science-metals must be approved by the student‘s major department. The Office of the Registrar and Academic Services has forms that should be completed and signed by the department heads from both departments involved in this minor.
