Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering Minors

IMG2400-8r1Minor in Aerospace Engineering

The Aerospace Engineering Minor is offered for students pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Aviation Science, Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering programs who would like the opportunity to explore Aerospace Engineering.

This Minor requires at least 18 credits of coursework that include a course in Introduction to Aeronautics and Astronautics (AENG 2000) and at least five AENG and ESCI courses at 2000 level or above (beyond the requirements for your major). The grades in all AENG/ESCI courses must be C or better.

To initiate a Minor in Aerospace Engineering, a student should consult with an Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering faculty member to discuss the minor courses and their prerequisites aligned with the interest of the student. The completion of a Minor in Aerospace Engineering must be certified by the chair of the AE/ME department as part of the graduation check.

Minor in Mechanical Engineering

The Mechanical Engineering Minor is available for students enrolled in the Aviation Science, Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Electrical and Computer Engineering or Biomedical Engineering undergraduate programs.

The requirements consist of at least 18 credits of coursework that includes a course in Introduction to Design (MENG 2000) and at least five MENG and ESCI courses at 2000 level or above (beyond the requirements for your major). The grades in all MENG/ESCI courses must be C or better.

Those interested can initiate a Minor in Mechanical Engineering by first consulting with an Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering faculty member to discuss the specific minor classes and their prerequisites.  They will take individual student interests into consideration during this process.  The completion of a Minor in Mechanical Engineering must be certified by the chair of the AE/ME department as part of the graduation check.
