Minor

The minor aims to expose students to the breadth of Mechanical Engineering in terms of topics and analytic and design activities.

Prerequisites: MATH 19 Calculus, MATH 20 Calculus, MATH 21 Calculus, and PHYSICS 41 Mechanics. Students interested in the ME Minor should submit a Minor Program Sheet to the Student Services Office prior to the last quarter of their senior year. After submitted your Minor Program is approved, declare your Minor on Axess.
