19-22 credits

The minor in Engineering is intended for students who aspire to work in a technology industry but are not majoring in an engineering field. Through lectures and hands-on labs, non-engineering students will gain experience working in an environment that resembles what they will face in the work force and will develop fundamental problem-solving skills that will benefit them throughout their careers.

Students must earn a grade of C- or better in any course that is used to satisfy Engineering minor requirements.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the minor in Engineering students will demonstrate their ability to:

  • identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
  • apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
