Materials Science Second Major for ISP Students
Students must also complete the Undergraduate Registration Requirement and the degree requirements of their home school.
The Integrated Science Program is a highly selective BA program within Weinberg College. Students majoring in ISP who wish to complete a second major in materials science must take:
|MAT_SCI 201-0||Introduction to Materials|
|or MAT_SCI 301-0||Materials Science Principles|
|MAT_SCI 315-0||Phase Equilibria & Diffusion of Materials|
& MAT_SCI 316-2
and Microstructural Dynamics
|2 300-level MAT SCI electives 1|
MAT_SCI 395-0 Special Topics in Materials Science and Engineering may count only with permission of the director of undergraduate studies.
Honors in Materials Science
Seniors who have done outstanding work in the classroom and research laboratory may be eligible for graduation with honors in materials science. To be considered, a student must meet minimum GPA requirements, complete 2 units of research (see table), and complete a written research report.
|2 units of research selected from:|
|CHEM 398-0||Undergraduate Seminar|
|CHEM 399-0||Independent Study|
|MAT_SCI 396-1||Senior Project in Materials Science and Engineering|
|MAT_SCI 396-2||Senior Project in Materials Science and Engineering|
|MAT_SCI 394-0||Honors Project in Materials Science|
|PHYSICS 398-0||Independent Thesis Research|
|PHYSICS 399-0||Independent Study|
These 2 units are neither required for nor counted toward the major. Students who intend to submit a senior research report should send an e-mail including the name of the research adviser to the director of undergraduate studies by fall of senior year.
Students whose theses and grades meet program criteria are recommended to the college for graduation with honors. For more information consult the program director and see Honors in the Major.
