UT Dallas 2016 Undergraduate Catalog

Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science

Minors

Students must take a minimum of 18 semester credit hours for the minor, 12 of which must be upper-division semester credit hours. Students who take a minor will be expected to meet the normal prerequisites in courses making up the minor, and should maintain a minimum GPA of 2.000 on a 4.00 scale (C average). Semester credit hours may not be used to satisfy both the major and minor requirements; however, free elective semester credit hours or major preparatory classes may be used to satisfy the minor. Core courses offered by the school may count as lower-division semester credit hours toward the minor. Topics courses must be approved by the school.

Minor in Nanoscience and Technology: 18 semester credit hours

Goals for the Minor in Nanoscience and Technology

As the field of nanotechnology develops further, particularly in the north Texas region, The University of Texas at Dallas has an important role to play in the education of knowledge workers for the industry. The Minor in Nanoscience and Technology offered by the Department of Materials Science and Technology provides a means for undergraduate students to familiarize themselves with the concepts and principles of nanotechnology.

This minor has been designed around three core NANO designated courses, the content of which is exclusively related to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The remaining nine semester credit hours of courses may be chosen from the list of courses below.

The contents of the courses BIOL 4461, CHEM 3322, and PHYS 4301 are similar enough that only one of these three courses may count toward the minor. In addition, several lower-division electives have been included to provide streamlined access to the available upper-division electives.

Since the three core courses are all upper-division electives, only one of the remaining nine semester credit hours must be an upper-division course, although students may choose to challenge themselves by pursuing all nine semester credit hours as upper-division electives.

In concordance with the creation of this minor, the Nanoscience (NANO) course designation would be added to the course catalog for use in designating future Nanoscience-specific courses as they are created.

Educational Objectives for the Minor in Nanoscience and Technology On completion of the Minor program, students will:

  • Have a comprehensive general education background
  • Have a working knowledge of nanotechnology and nanoscience principles and industry applications
  • Be able to apply key concepts in materials science, chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering to the field of nanotechnology
  • Understand the societal and technology issues that may impede the adoption of nanotechnology
  • Have the ability to communicate effectively and work collaboratively
  • Be able to become successful professionals and, if they desire, be able to pursue graduate study
  • Be able to identify career paths and requisite knowledge and skills for career change towards nanotechnology
