The minor in the physics of materials exposes students to some of the key topics in materials science and provides students with opportunities to participate in materials research and use advanced instrumentation. The experience and knowledge gained are particularly relevant because technological advances in all areas, from growing artificial skin to developing faster computers, are critically dependent on innovations in materials research. Therefore, this minor is particularly appropriate for biology, chemistry, or biochemistry majors or premedical (veterinary or dental) students, especially those interested in the high-tech industry or medical research. The minor may also be attractive to anyone with an interest in science and/or problem solving and laboratory skills.
