Research Project Approval

A total of six (6) 400-level, materials-related research credits are required for the Materials Science minor. Students whose major(s) require research credits may use those courses to fulfill the minor’s research requirement. Students should register for MSCI 491 and 492 (override required) if major-specific research is not required or does not focus on materials.

Research projects must be pre-approved prior to registration for MSCI 340. This will allow for time to help you secure a research advisor/PI if you are having difficulty finding a research group.

Submit this form to request project approval at least two weeks prior to winter quarter early registration.

You will be contacted if there are questions about your project.

Please contact the AMSEC office ( for advising.
