Minor in Electrical Engineering

The minor in electrical engineering is designed for students in other disciplines who desire an exposure to the theory and practice of electrical engineering. The minimum number of credits (exclusive of prerequisites) for the minor is 14. An electrical engineering faculty will be assigned as an advisor to assist with scheduling and track the student progress toward the minor.

Mechanical engineering majors may not use the minor in electrical engineering as a substitute for the thematic cluster requirement of the core curriculum.
