The general engineering minor curriculum is intended for students outside of engineering. Engineers apply scientific and mathematical principles to design, analyze, develop, test, and manufacture products, services, materials, systems, and processes. Engineers develop innovative and creative ideas to help society solve problems. They make our lives easier, more comfortable, safer, and productive.
The engineering minor provides a vehicle that will expand students' technological literacy and provides the tools that will enable them to understand and participate thoughtfully in today’s world.
