BSEE Degree Requirements and Policies
Nanoscience and Molecular Engineering Option

Additional information on the Nanoscience and Molecular Engineering undergraduate option can be found on the Nanoscience and Molecular Engineering Option Program Network page.

Admission

Admission to the NME option for electrical engineering majors is by self-selection and normally occurs in winter quarter of the junior year, upon completion of all electrical engineering prerequisites and formal admission to the BS electrical engineering major. Students who have completed NME 220 with a minimum grade of 2.0 are eligible. To declare the option, set up an appointment with an EE undergraduate advisor. During this appointment, you will develop a course plan to complete the degree requirements and complete a Change of Major form to formally declare the option.

Degree Requirements

Unless otherwise specified, students completing the NME option are bound by the regular BSEE Degree Requirements. Students are required to complete a six-credit NME Core and have a restricted choice of Major Concentration Area.

 

Nanoscience and Molecular Engineering Core (6 credits)

Electrical Engineering Major Concentration Area (at least 24 credits)

The approved area for the NME Option is: Sensors & Devices. Other areas may be announced in the future. The capstone course project in any area selected must be on a topic appropriate for NME.

NME Electives

NME students may also wish to consider the following courses in addition to their Major Concentration Area.

Credits earned for these courses will count towards either Additional EE Electives, Additional College of Engineering Electives or Approved Non-EE Electives, provided that the course meets whatever other requirements apply to a specific elective group.

Additional College of Engineering Electives

The credits earned from the NME Core courses reduce the credits required in this category from 10 to four. 

Seminar Courses Applied to Required Credits

NME 221, 321 and 421 do not apply to the 2 credit seminar limit.
