Materials Science and Engineering (MSE/MATSCI) is essential to the practice of engineering and technology as all facets of engineering depend critically on the materials utilized for specific applications, ranging from semiconductors for computer chips to polymers for new electronic devices. One important goal of this work involves the development of processes for altering the structure of materials and thereby controlling their properties. MATSCI students take courses in math, chemistry, physics, introductory engineering, and a MATSCI core of courses/labs before specializing in one of 10 different focus areas.
Develop your ability to integrate engineering and architecture in ways that blend innovative architectural design with cutting-edge engineering technologies.
Civil and Environmental Engineering
This pre-professional program balances the fundamentals common to many specialties in civil engineering and allows for concentration in structures and construction or environmental and water studies.
Energy Resources Engineering
Gain engineering skills while also exploring the many facets of the energy industry including renewable energy resources, oil and gas recovery, geothermal engineering, and more. The program allows students flexibility in exploring the evolution of energy, while providing an earth sciences based approach to energy resources.
Develop an understanding of the fundamental laws that govern the universe, and a strong foundation of mathematical, analytical, laboratory, and written communication skills.
