MSE Course Descriptions

MSE Courses

The undergraduate course structure allows students to integrate classroom knowledge with laboratory and project work in material design, synthesis, processing, and characterization. This integration is the core foundation of MSE and is critical to each student's future career success in industry and academia.

The undergraduate curriculum includes:

  1. 100- and 200-level prerequisite courses including math, science, and engineering fundamentals
  2. Required core 300- and 400-level MSE courses taken by all MSE students
  3. 400-level elective courses that senior students can select

The UW Course Catalog provides descriptions, times, and instructors for all MSE courses for current and upcoming quarters.
