A Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) in Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) prepares  students for a wide variety of career or graduate school options. MSE is an enabling discipline that focuses on developing processes needed to design and create materials with atomic and molecular scale structures that provide the properties necessary for meeting performance requirements for functions and applications for meeting next generation societal challenges.

Admitted Summer or Fall First-Year Students:

Admitted first-year applicants who are seeking a change of major should attend a group Change of Major Information Session to learn more about the degree. To sign up for a meeting, please complete change of major meeting request form.

Virtual “Change of Major” Information Session Dates for 2020:

MSE adheres to the Institute’s Change of Major policies, but has implemented academic advising protocols to ensure that this important decision is in the student’s best interest and provides the foundation for a successful career. According to Institute policies, newly admitted students in their first term of enrollment cannot receive approval for a change of major request until after the deadline for withdrawal with a W grade. Change of major requests submitted after this date are processed at the end of the term and approved changes become effective for the next term of enrollment.

For additional information and FAQs regarding change of major for newly admitted students please refer to Change of Major info.

Admitted Transfer Students:  
Admitted transfer students may pursue a change of major after their first semester (12 or more credit hours) at Tech. However, a change of major is not guaranteed for transfer students, as outlined in the Institute policies.
