Engineering Track

Illinois Tech’s engineering track for high school dual-enrollment courses are designed for students to sequentially build their skills. Students can take the courses below independently or as part of a sequence, but some courses have prerequisites. Check out the course descriptions below for more information about each course.

MS 201: Materials Science Engineering (Three credits)

This introductory course is the foundation of materials science and engineering. It covers the hierarchy of structure (atomic structure, atomic bonding, crystal structure, microstructure, and macrostructure); point, line, and area defects; diffusion, mechanical properties, structure-property relationships, phase diagrams, phase transformation, and electrical properties; and the difference between metals, ceramics, and polymers.

Prerequisite(s): Minimum 2.40 grade-point average; at least a high school sophomore; high school chemistry OR CHEM 122, CHEM 124, or MS 201
