Materials Science and Engineering Learning Center

The Materials Science and Engineering Learning Center (MSELC) provides assistance to students in materials science courses. Coaches are available to help with understanding and application of course principles. Currently, we fully support MSE 2100 and MSE 2110. We also assist students with core materials science and engineering concepts found in all undergraduate and graduate courses.

The MSELC began as a series of help sessions for MSE 2100 (formerly MY 2100). Alpha Sigma Mu, the materials science honors society, continued to host these sessions, which expanded into the current learning center.


The MSE Learning Center is located in M&M U204, on the Undergraduate (south) side of the Mineral and Materials (M&M) Building.  After 6 p.m. you may need to enter through the door under the bridge that connects the undergraduate and graduate sides of the M&M and go up the stairs to the second floor where the swipe card reader is located.  If you have any difficulties contact the learning center coordinator at
