The materials science program can be completed in three years or six to nine semesters. This does not include dual enrollment or any transfer credit which you may have earned in high school or at other universities. However, a three-year degree plan is not best suited for every student. It assumes:
- No remedial course work is required.
- The student does not fail any classes.
- The student does not change either the major or minor.
- The student is willing to take classes each summer.
It is recommended that students in the materials science program do not finish all of their general education courses before beginning to take courses in materials science. Some materials science courses require prerequisites, so it is important to meet with an advisor in the program before you schedule your first semester or as soon as you think you might be interested in this program.
This is only a sample schedule, and an advisor will be able to customize the best plan for you.
Check out the course rotation before scheduling your classes.
