All materials and organisms are comprised of atoms and chemicals. Chemistry is often described as the central science. Further exploration of chemicals, atoms, and the resulting material properties can better inform a student who may be interested in the pharmaceutical industry, health care, regenerative medicine, nanotechnology, environmental science, materials science, polymers, plastics, cosmetics, agriculture, and alternative fuel sources. The interdisciplinary nature of current research and technology may motivate students to learn more chemistry. Any student enrolled in a degree program at MSOE may also earn a Minor in Chemistry. Upon completion of the requirements, students would have a solid foundation in chemistry.
To qualify for a Minor in Chemistry, a student must take 18 credits of eligible courses. This must include a minimum of 6 credits from the list of approved elective courses, six credits of which must be from courses not specifically required for the student’s major. At least 50% of all credits towards the minor must have been earned in residence at MSOE, including six credits from the list of approved elective courses. A minimum GPA of 2.00 is required for courses that are counted towards the minor. No more than four credits of approved courses without the CHM XXXX designation will count towards the minor.
Some elective courses are offered as part of the regular course offerings, others are only offered if there is sufficient student interest, and many are on a 2-year rotating schedule. The Physics and Chemistry Department is committed to offer enough courses for the Chemistry Minor within every four years, however there is no guarantee of availability of any particular course in any particular term.
