Courses to total 127 credits for this degree, not counting ENGL 101 , any 398 (Internship), any 498 (Internship), any 598 (Internship), or mathematics courses numbered lower than MATH 170 , and other courses that might be required to remove deficiencies.

To be enrolled in upper-division MSE courses, a student majoring in materials science and engineering must earn a grade of C or better in each of the following courses:

CHEM 111
General Chemistry I
and General Chemistry I Laboratory
CHEM 112
General Chemistry II
and General Chemistry II Laboratory
ENGR 210Engineering Statics3

MATH 175Calculus II4
MSE 101Introduction to Metallurgy and Materials Science2

A student majoring in materials science and engineering may not register for upper-division MSE courses after accumulating more than four grades of D or F in UI mathematics, science, or engineering courses. Included in this number are multiple repeats in a single class or single repeats in multiple classes. A warning will be issued in writing to students who have accumulated two grades of D or F used to satisfy curricular requirements.

A GPA in MSE designated courses of at least 2.0 is required to graduate.
