DEPARTMENTAL MINOR REQUIREMENTS

Beyond the required core, students are required to complete the Minor Program specified by the home department.

Current Minor Requirements for ChemE/PPSM, DMSE/PPSM, and MechE/PPSM students are shown below: These menus are subject to change and are shown here for general guidance. PPSM students are expected to check wiht the Graduate Office of the home department for periodic updates.

 

Department of Mechanical Engineering

REQUIREMENT: Complete with a grade of B or higher, a minimum of 3 additional ME graduate-level (G or H level) subjects that are distributed over at least two of the seven ME Thrust Areas (http://me.mit.edu/research)

 

Department of Chemical Engineering

REQUIREMENT: Complete with a grade of B or higher, a minimum of 3 ChE subjects, at least two of which must be from the list of core subjects shown below:

• 10.34 Numerical Methods Applied to Chemical Engineering
• 10.40 Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics
• 10.50 Analysis of Transport Phenomena
• 10.65 Chemical Reactor Engineering

 

Department of Materials Science and Engineering

REQUIREMENT: Complete a minimum of 3 DMSE subjects, including:
• 3.20 Materials at Equilibrium
• 3.21 Kinetic Processes in Materials
• One additional non-polymer graduate subject, 9+units

In addition, students are encouraged to enroll in Elective Courses depending on their individual backgrounds and interests. A selection of elective subjects that may be of interest to the student can be found at the related course offerings section of this document.
