MSE Additional Major Programs

A student may choose to augment the traditional Materials Science and Engineering degree with the addition of courses specializing in the policy aspects of engineering (EPP) or the biomedical aspect of engineering (BME). Students pursuing these opportunities are not educated to be a different kind of engineer; rather their education is intended to enable them to be better, more socially responsible engineers in the traditional technical fields.
