Minor in Materials Science
Joseph J. BelBruno, Director, Nanomaterials Center
Ian Baker, Sherman Fairchild Professor of Engineering
The minor in Materials Science is sponsored by faculty in Chemistry, Physics and Engineering who share an interest in interdisciplinary education and research in materials science. The program is coordinated through the Center for Nanomaterials Research at Dartmouth. The minor can be readily combined with majors in any of the three departments.
Prerequisites : The necessary background is obtained by completion of CHEM 5 and CHEM 6, and PHYS 13 and PHYS 14 or equivalent courses.
Requirements: A total of four additional courses are required. These must include ENGS 24 and PHYS 76 or ENGS 137. Two electives courses are chosen from the following combinations: ENGS 131 or PHYS 73; ENGS 74; CHEM 108 or CHEM 109; ENGS 73, ENGS 132 or PHYS 43. (If ENGS 137 is taken, one of the electives must be from outside the engineering department.)
