Electronic, Optical, and Magnetic Materials (EOM)

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering offers the minor in Electronic, Optical, and Magnetic Materials for engineering science students or for non-engineering science students who seek to obtain a more thorough understanding of the engineering sciences. Emerging technologies in wireless communication, data storage and transmission, sensors, medical diagnostics, and semiconductor manufacturing require graduates with an understanding of electronics design, electromagnetic theory, and electronic and magnetic materials. The courses in the minor provide the student with a broad introduction to the engineering science principles and applications associated with electronic, optical, and magnetic materials.

Engineering science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics and statistics students can assemble a sequence of courses with 18 to 24 credits to satisfy the minor. Courses used to satisfy the requirements of the minor may not be used to satisfy requirements of another minor in engineering science. The student's program must be approved by the undergraduate program director.
