Minor in Mechanical Engineering
Engineering Undergraduates can complement their degree with a minor in Mechanical Engineering, one of the largest and broadest engineering disciplines, encompassing the development of a broad range of systems from specialized equipment to everyday household items.
- Undergrad Minors
- 5 Courses
- 20 Credits
- A Minor in Mechanical Engineering is earned through the completion of 20 credits. Twelve credits must be unique to the minor and may not count toward the fulfillment of majors or additional minors. No more than 8 credits can be used to satisfy the student’s major degree program requirements.
- At least 12 credits of ENG ME courses at the 300 level or above.
- The remaining 8 credits can be ENG ME or EK courses at the 300-level or above, or any of the following courses:
- ENG BE 404, ENG EC 402 (cannot be used in addition to ENG ME 403 and ENG ME 404)
- ENG BE 436 (cannot be used in addition to ENG ME 303)
- ENG EK 424 (cannot be used in addition to ENG ME 304)
- Students are expected to obtain the necessary background (pre-requisites or equivalents) to complete their chosen minor program.
- A minimum 2.00 GPA is required in the courses used to satisfy the minor, with no grade less than a C–.
Timeline to Declare
- Students must have a declared major on record in order to apply for the Minor in Mechanical Engineering.
- Applications for the Minor in Mechanical Engineering must be approved by the Associate Chair of Undergraduate Studies of the Mechanical Engineering Department.
- Students planning to pursue a minor in Mechanical Engineering should apply as early as possible—or by May 1 of the junior year—to facilitate course planning.
