Minor in Mechanical Engineering
The minor in mechanical engineering is designed for students in other disciplines who desire an exposure to the theory and practice of mechanical engineering. The minimum number of credits (exclusive of pre-requisites) for the minor is 12. A mechanical engineering faculty will be assigned as an advisor to assist with scheduling and track the student progress toward the minor.
Electrical engineering majors may not use the minor in mechanical engineering as a substitute for the thematic cluster requirement of the core curriculum.
Successful completion of the following courses with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0: MEE 150, MEE 230, MEE 251, and MEE 270.
