AES requires a concentration selection that is part of the 120 credits needed to graduate with a Bachelor of Science Degree from the College of Engineering.  MSU offers several Undergraduate minors to enhance and supplement degrees. The credit requirement for a minor varies; most are in the 16-21 credit range in addition to degree requirement.  Some minors will allow credits from the BS degree to count for both the minor and major degree; others specify the number of unique credits necessary for the minor.

Minor in Materials Science and Engineering
