1.  If students choose the analytical chemistry sequence CH 421, 422, 461, only one inorganic course (3 cr), CH 411, is required.  CH 411 and CH 412 are a sequence so that CH 411 is the specified inorganic chemistry course. 

2.  CH 462 is the recommended WIC course and CH 422 is strongly recommended as a co-requisite. If this course does not fit with your schedule you can take one of the other WIC lab courses (CH 464 Fall or CH 463 Spring). 

3. Students will need to contact the College of Engineering to obtain approval to enroll in restricted ENGR courses. Qualified students wishing to take ENGR 300 level courses which are normally restricted to engineering students should go to the MIME UG Advising office (Dearborn 102) and pick up an override form, secure the necessary approvals and MIME staff who will help you with your override request. Please make sure that you indicate on your override request form that you are in the Materials Science option in the BS in Chemistry degree.  Students should first complete math through MTH 256 and the physics sequence through PH 212. 

4. Students interested in this option should have a secondary advisor in the Department of Chemical Engineering.  

Professor Willie "Skip" Rochefort Gleeson 205 541-737-2408 skip.rochefort@oregonstate.edu

5. Students interested in this option might also contact a secondary advisor in the Department of Chemistry who has expertise in materials science such as Professor Watson, Lerner, Subrumanian or Keszler. Undergraduate research with these faculty or other faculty in materials science is encouraged.

6.  The elective courses for the materials science option are to be approved by the student's academic adviser by the end of the winter quarter of the junior year. A maximum of three credits of research (CH 401 or CHE 401) counts for the program.
