Minor in General Engineering

The General Engineering minor is intended to enable students outside of engineering who are majoring in non-engineering fields to gain an introduction to engineering design and analysis. Declaring the minor is by application only; students will be advised by the Director of General Engineering. Students must complete a minimum of courses listed under the ‘Requirements for the minor’. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that the prerequisites for each course are met. To complete the minor, students must earn a GPA of at least 2.0 in the prerequisite and required courses.
