Major: Ceramic Engineering
Ceramics, in addition to being a fine art, also requires a thorough working knowledge of certain materials. Whether you’re helping to design a new office building, or a vase for your bedroom, you’ll need to know what you’re going to use to construct your next project, and that’s where the engineering comes in.
After you’ve nailed down the creative design part, someone has to figure out how to turn it into a reality. In walks the engineer. By joining together ceramics and engineering, this major will provide you with more than just a working knowledge of the material used by ceramicists. You’ll be able to help create new and more interesting works with new materials of which only somebody with your knowledge could have ever dreamed.
