Engineering Concepts - Minor

The Minor in Engineering Concepts is intended for students with majors outside the College of Engineering. The minor exposes them to the concepts of engineering design, analysis, and application so that they may work cooperatively and productively with engineers to improve society through technology and other advances.

Upon completion of this minor, students should be able to explain the general engineering design process and its components; differentiate respective engineering fields, their topical focuses, and typical applications; employ basic quantitative methods engineers commonly use to enhance understanding of problems; and relate engineering design process and analytical tools to at least 3 areas of major societal pursuit.
