PROPOSED REVISION TO OPTION COURSES FOR THE BS CHEMISTRY - MATERIAL SCIENCE  OPTION

 

These changes are accepted by the Chemistry department because the Chemistry and Engineering departments have  changed some courses currently specified in the chemistry materials science option in the OSU catalog such that students cannot take exactly is listed in the catalog.

 

Previous MATERIALS SCIENCE OPTION (33-34 cr) (prior to 2010)

 

CHE 444 Thin Film Materials Processing (3)
CHE 445 Polymer Engineering and Science (4)
ENGR 322 Mechanical Properties of Materials (4)
ME 481 Thermodynamics of Solids (3)
MTH 256 Applied Differential Equations (4)
Select one of the two following courses:
  CH 445 Physical Chemistry of Materials (3)
or ENGR 321 Materials Science (3)
MATERIAL SCIENCE ELECTIVES--Select three courses from below:
  CH 401, CH 413, CH 448, CE 321, CE 322, ECE 317, FP 318, ME 482, ME 485, or PH 475
 

Proposed but not approved - will be submitted for approval
