The minor in mechanical engineering exposes students to the core foundations of the discipline. Courses help non-majors explore high-technology careers and communicate more effectively with engineers on project teams. The minor consists of a sequence of five discipline-based courses that build on prerequisite knowledge from calculus and engineering mechanics. Elective courses are included to provide additional depth of knowledge in an area of individual student interest.
