The structural design minor creates a focus on the different types of structures and materials used in design. It also introduces related design codes. The minor is designed to accommodate students majoring in mechanical engineering technology or mechanical engineering.
Notes about this minor:
- The minor is closed to students majoring in civil engineering technology
- Posting of the minor on the student’s academic transcript requires a minimum GPA of 2.0 in the minor.

|CVET-434||Design of Highway Bridges|
Quarter Curriculum - For Reference Only
Effective fall 2013, RIT converted its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. The following content has been made available as reference only. Currently matriculated students who began their academic programs in quarters should consult their academic adviser for guidance and course selection.
The minor focuses on structural design and the analysis of steel, concrete, and wood. The minor also explores building codes as they relate to design.
Students from outside the civil engineering technology program with majors in mechanical engineering technology or mechanical engineering would benefit from the minor. The minor is not limited to students in these fields of study, but there are some technical prerequisite courses.
