Gain expertise in the properties and applications of different types of materials (metals, ceramics, plastics, etc) for mechanical components and systems.
This flowchart lists the electives (boxes) that usually make up the Materials concentration and also the vital prerequisites from the EP core curriculum (angled boxes) needed before beginning the professional electives. Note that this concentration will require you to elect GE 2340 as part of your core curriculum (as opposed to ME 2630). To accumulate a total of 17 credits of professional electives, the full flow chart would have to be completed. Note that the 4000-level courses in this flowchart are not necessarily available every year. To plan this concentration, see the Mechanical Engineering department's proposed course offerings schedule.
