General Requirements and Policies for a Minor in the School of Engineering

  1. A minor consists of a set of courses totaling not less than 18 and not more than 36 units, with a mimimum of six courses of at least 3 units each. These courses must be taken for a letter grade except where letter grades are not offered.
  2. The set of courses should be sufficiently coherent as to present a body of knowledge within a discipline or sub-discipline.
  3. Students may not overlap (double-count) courses for completing major and minor requirements, unless:

a) Overlapping courses constitute introductory skill requirements (for example, introductory math and statistics)

b) Overlapping courses enable the student to meet School of Engineering requirements, such as introductory science, the TiS requirement, and engineering fundamentals.Hoever, courses used for the major and or minor depth/core program must NOT be duplicated within any other of the student's degree programs. Example 1: An ME major using ENGR 30 within their ME core may not also use it within the core of their AA minor program.Example 2: An MS&E major using ENGR 14 as one of their ENGR Fundamentals cannot also use it as part of the core of their ME minor. In each case, the student should consult with their advisor to find an accept substitute course for the minor program.

   4.  Departmentally-based minior programs are structured at the discretion of the sponsoring department, subject only to the three requirements listed above.
