Electrical Engineering Minor

Sohail Dianat, Minor Adviser
(585) 475-2165,

Electrical engineering encompasses disciplines such as electronics, communication, control, digital systems, and signal/image processing. A minor in electrical engineering provides a foundation to explore specialized material in electrical engineering. The minor provides students from other engineering or non-engineering disciplines an introduction to the wide-ranging content of the electrical engineering major.

Notes about this minor:

  • The minor is closed to students majoring in computer engineering technology, electrical engineering, or electrical engineering technology. 
  • Posting of the minor on the student's academic transcript requires a minimum GPA of 2.0 in the minor. 
  • Notations may appear in the curriculum chart below outlining pre-requisites, co-requisites, and other curriculum requirements (see footnotes).
