Honors Concentration


Students who wish to pursue the honors materials science and engineering concentration or the honors biomaterials concentration will normally be part of the Chancellor’s Honors Program. Candidates for these honors concentrations must complete the following requirements.

  • First-year courses for honors concentration in the engineering majors.
  • Two upper-division honors courses in Materials Science and Engineering via Honors-by-Contract or Honors Independent Study. The contract or independent study must be submitted to the Chancellor’s Honors Program for approval by the third week of the semester. (Note: These honors requirements are course substitutions for the materials science and engineering major.)
  • A minimum of 3-credit hours of an honors senior design course. This requirement is normally satisfied as part of their senior capstone design course (MSE 489 ).
