Not all courses are taught every semester. Please refer to the Testudo Course Listing page for the classes offered for your desired semester.


  • The minor requirement will consist of a total of five courses (at least 15 credits).
  • At least two of the courses (6 credits) must be from the list of NanoFabrication / Nanosynthesis and/or NanoCharacterization electives.
  • At least two of the courses (6 credits) must be from the list of Fundamental Science and/or Nanoscience Electives. At least one of these must be listed as a NanoApplication / Specialization elective.
  • Up to two courses (6 credits) may be double counted, i.e. used both toward satisfying the requirements of the major and the NS&T minor.
  • Three of the courses (9 credits) must be from outside the individual major. Cross listed courses (e.g. ENMA460/PHYS431) which are offered by the major department do not qualify as being outside the major.
  • At least three of the courses (9 credits) must be at the 400 level or above.
  • No more than two courses (6 credits) from any one department will be credited toward the NS&T minor.
  • A grade of "C" or above is required in all courses to be credited toward the NS&T minor.
  • Students wishing to participate in the NS&T minor must declare participation formally. Declaration of participation in the NS&T minor must follow a meeting with the individual department representative to the NS&T committee who will help the student to develop a program of courses suitable for the minor and a schedule for taking those courses. Examples of model programs for each participating department are given below. Students from outside participating departments will consult with one of the MSE representatives to develop a program of courses and declare participation.
  • Research experience (XXXX499) courses may be included in the NS&T minor in addition to those listed above, provided that the research is NS&T-related. The course must be within a participating department. Similarly, if the design capstone course (e.g. ENMA490) from a department is judged to be in the area of NS&T, it may be counted as a Specialization elective toward the minor. Judgment of whether these courses qualify will fall to the departmental NanoProgram Committee member.
