I am currently a junior in physics and have set sights on Materials Science (Electronic Materials/Nanotechnology) for grad school. My school does not offer MS.Eng as a degree and so the only Materials Science course I can enroll in as the general "Introduction to Materials Science Course" offered for the other engineering majors mainly. I am looking for general advice that you may have such as courses I should take, websites/resources I should look into, etc. Please let me know your thoughts. Not looking for an exact roadmap but rather open to anything. Thanks in advance.

I will take the following physics and math courses this year and next year:

Physics: Electronics, Classical Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism I and II, Thermodynamics/Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Intro to Solid State Physics, Contemporary Physics Lab I. Math: Linear Algebra.

The rest I will decide based on what research I could end up getting this summer, how my interests evolve after taking some of the above courses, discussions with faculty and industry (seminars etc.).

Physics Maybe: Optics

Math Maybe: Numerical Analysis (uses MATLAB), Partial Differential Equations, Intro to Complex Analysis, and a Statistics course for engineers/scientists. Topology.
