Nine School of Engineering programs offer a Minor Program: Aeronautics/Astronautics (AA), Civil Engineering (CE), Chemical Engineering (CHEME), Computer Science (CS), Electrical Engineering (EE), Environmental Engineering (ENVEN), Materials Science & Engineering (MATSC), Mechanical Engineering (ME), and Management Science & Engineering (MGTSC). Details on each program can be found in the Handbook starting on page 293 (of the 2012-13 edition).

MMMM Form Required by SSC

<span style="color: rgb(153, 0, 0);" /> In addition to the program sheet, you must also fill out the Major-Minor & Multiple Major Course Approval form early in your senior year; we recommend filling out and having this form approved by the SoE Dean's office in 135 Huang (not by your SoE advisor or department) well before your final quarter at Stanford so that if problems are brought to light in the process you still have time to find a solution. The purpose of the MMMM form is to make sure you are not doublecounting any courses in common between two degree programs. For details on what is allowed to double count (aka overlap), see policy not #3 below. See the form for further instructions.

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

1. A minor consists of 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. These courses must be taken for a letter grade except where letter grades are not offered. A minimum total GPA of 2.0 must be maintained in courses taken for the minor; departments may choose to set a higher GPA.
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. However, courses used for the major and/or minor depth/core must not be duplicated within any other of the student’s degree programs. Example 1: An ME major using ENGR 30 within their core may not also use it within the core of their AA minor. 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 acceptable substitute course for the minor program.
4. Departmentally-based minor programs are structured at the discretion of the sponsoring department, subject only to requirements (1), (2), and (3) above.
No “General Engineering” minor is offered.
