1) General Education Core (required by the University of all undergraduates).
2) Engineering Core (required by the College of Engineering). This includes courses in English,
Math, Physics, Chemistry, Statistics, Programming, Statics, and Stress Analysis.
3) Materials Science and Engineering Core (required by the MSE Department). It includes
courses on Atomic Scale Structure, Microstructure and Characterization, Mechanical Behavior,
Electrical Properties, Thermodynamics, Transport and Kinetics, Phase Diagrams, Phase
Transformations, Modeling of Material Processes, Materials Selection, and Materials
4) MSE-Specialization in the senior year (required by the MSE Department).
