B.S.-Materials Engineering Technical Electives

Emphases in Materials Engineering

Materials Engineering students may concentrate their electives in one area of interest to develop an emphasis in that area. These courses typically come from the Materials Engineering program and other programs at SJSU. The following lists of courses are those which are available in three primary emphases areas. These lists are extensive because most of these courses are electives and are not available in every semester. Other emphasis programs may also be developed in consultation with the Materials Engineering advisor. 


Biotechnology Emphasis


Environmental Health & Safety Engineering Emphasis 


Semiconductor, Mechanical & Structural Emphasis


Students should be aware that the listed courses may require prerequisites that are not in the standard Materials Engineering program and it may be necessary for students to obtain instructor approval, to enroll. Instructor approval should be obtained prior to enrolling without the normal prerequisites. Note these course lists change frequently and you should check with your advisor to confirm the latest version.
