Do you need a second semester of inorganic chemistry for Physics/Engineering Masters?

  • #1
Aside from chemical engineering or biophysics, to what extent do physics and engineering masters programs require you to have had a second semester in inorganic chemistry? Thanks.

Depends. Usually none.

I did a masters (and PhD) in physics and haven't taken chemistry since high school (although physical chemistry would have come in useful for my own research). None of the programs required or even suggested it; math and computer science were more useful.

My university made us take it...

It did not contribute to my Physics/Math education whatsoever.

So check with your university

I had to take General Chem I and 2. Though I never took chem in highschool. I found them both pretty interesting.

None of the engineering degrees I've investigated required anything more than one semester of chemistry, with the exception of biomed, agricultural, and chemical.
