Why an MSE Minor?

The understanding and selection of materials is a common requirement in many professional engineering disciplines: ME, AERO, NERS, BME, EECS, Naval, CEE, etc. Pursuing a minor in Materials Science and Engineering is a smart way to broaden your skill set and increase your overall marketability.
