Materials Science and Engineering Minor

New MSE Minor starts Fall 2021!

The Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) faculty are excited to announce this new opportunity for students to choose an MSE minor, starting in the Fall of 2021!

The Academic Senate and Provost have approved a new MSE minor starting this Fall 2021.  Keep in mind that while the MSE minor will appear in the 2022-23 catalog, it is active for enrollment this academic year 2021-22.

The new minor is the first, and currently only, engineering minor offered at UC Merced; it is open to students in all three Schools who meet the prerequisites for the 20 required units.
