Bachelor of Science (BS) in Materials Science and Engineering/Mechanical Engineering Joint Major
The joint major programs are designed for students who wish to undertake study in two areas of engineering in order to qualify for employment in either field or for positions in which competence in two fields is required. These curricula include the core courses in each of the major fields. While they require slightly increased course loads, they can be completed in four years.
Students interested in the mechanical behavior of materials have the option of pursuing a joint major in Materials Science and Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. The curriculum addresses key fundamentals of both disciplines, preparing students in materials selection and design for structural and functional applications. Students completing this joint major enter professional positions in the aerospace, automotive, energy, and manufacturing industries, along with many others.
