Requirements for the Minor in Biomaterials (BES)

Electrical Engineering (ESE), Engine­ering Science (ESG), and Mechanical Engineering (MEC) majors may choose to complete the sequence of courses for the minor as they relate to their major program. An example of the minor course list for each is listed below, but students should contact the Depart­ment of Materials Science and Engine­ering as early as possible for detailed requirements.

Completion of the minor requires 21-23 credits in addition to courses counting towards the requirements for the majors.
