Minor in the School of Engineering

An undergraduate minor in some Engineering programs may be pursued by interested students; see the Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs, or consult with a department's undergraduate program representative or the Office of Student Affairs, Huang Engineering Center, Suite 135.

General requirements and policies for a minor in the School of Engineering are:

  1. A set of courses totaling not less than 20 and not more than 36 units, with a minimum of six courses of at least 3 units each.
  2. The set of courses should be sufficiently coherent as to present a body of knowledge within a discipline or subdiscipline.
  3. Prerequisite mathematics, statistics, or science courses, such as those normally used to satisfy the school's requirements for a department major, may not be used to satisfy the requirements of the minor; conversely, engineering courses that serve as prerequisites for subsequent courses must be included in the unit total of the minor program.

Departmentally based minor programs are structured at the discretion of the sponsoring department, subject only to requirements 1, 2, and 3 above. Interdisciplinary minor programs may be submitted to the Undergraduate Council for approval and sponsorship. A general Engineering minor is not offered.
