Polymer Science Minor

University Park, College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (PLMSC)

Robert Kimel, Associate Head Materials Science and Engineering

The goal of the polymer science minor is to produce graduates who have a first-hand knowledge of the relationships between the synthesis, structure, properties and processing of polymer materials. Students are required to take MATSE 443 (3 credits), MATSE 441; MATSE 445; MATSE 446; MATSE 447 which provides a broad overview of the subject, then select 3 credits chosen from a suite of courses that deal with polymer synthesis, microstructure and morphology, properties and processing.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
