Minors: Engineers

Engineering undergraduate students have some additional requirements and considerations when choosing a minor. Please reach each item below carefully.

In addition to completing the courses for the concentration requirement, an undergraduate engineer may elect to enroll in a minor program in the College of Liberal Arts or the School of Engineering. All courses used in fulfillment of the minor program must be taken for a grade. No more than two courses used to fulfill a foundation or concentration requirement may be counted toward fulfillment of the minor. Please note that students who major in Engineering (no major) cannot have a minor.

Multiple Minors

Given that all major and minor requirements can be fulfilled, it is permissible for students registered in the School of Engineering to pursue more than one minor.

Designating Your Minor

A student enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts or School of Engineering may declare a minor using the Add a Minor form, also available on the Registrar's Student Forms page

Course Requirements

To obtain a list of courses required for the minor, consult with the department offering the minor. In many cases a minor will require five courses, but this is not a universal rule.

Double Counting Courses

No more than two of the courses used to fulfill a minor may also be used to fulfill Foundation or Concentration requirements. There is no limit on the number of Introductory, HASS, or Free Elective courses that may be double counted toward the minor. The policy may be applied to multiple minors separately.

Engineering Management Minor

As indicated in SIS, EM 52 and EM 54 and EM 153 are courses that can be used by engineering students to fulfill their Social Science distribution requirements. For some engineering majors, it is possible to count two additional EM courses toward the Foundation and Concentration Blocks. Any remaining course required for the EM major would typically be a Free Elective.

Options Offered by the School of Engineering

Engineering students may pursue the following minors offered by the School of Engineering:
