Design and Simulation of Mechanical Systems - Minor

The objectives of the Mechanical Engineering minor-Design and Simulation of Mechanical Systems- are to expand the working knowledge of mechanical engineering principles to broader engineering activities and to provide non-MEEN students with a specialized aspect of mechanical engineering to enhance their skillset and capabilities within their discipline-specific field. Candidates for a Mechanical Engineering minor must be high-achieving in their own discipline, with a minimum GPA of 3.5. Students may apply for the minor as early as their fourth semester of college but before their seventh semester of college. Students are responsible for the satisfying course pre-requisites (C or better) which may or may not apply toward the minor or the student's major degree(s).
