Chemical Engineering Major with Materials Engineering Minor
Materials Engineering relates the properties of materials to their structure.  All engineers are called upon to work on new ideas and with novel materials.  Almost every field of engineering is limited by the properties of available materials.  The graduate with an understanding of the principles of materials behavior possesses a decided career advantage.

The College of Engineering provides a minor in Materials Engineering to the student who satisfactorily completes 24-units requirement within her/his major curriculum.  It is frequently possible for students to complete the minor within the normal requirements for an engineering degree through careful advisement including authorized substitutions.
