Engineering Science Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs A-Z

The Engineering Science Minor offers non-majors the opportunity to learn and practice engineering design on the very first day of class. Students complete course work side by side with Engineering Science majors, creating opportunities for interdisciplinary teamwork around identifying and solving 21st century engineering grand challenges. The minor program consists of engineering problem solving and professionalism courses as well as a two-course minor cornerstone sequence; ENGR 199: Cohort Grand Challenge I and ENGR 299: Cohort Grand Challenge II. Finally, students must complete a one-credit selective experiential opportunity such as an internship, a research project or other approved professional enhancement activity. Complete overlap between major and minor courses and a focus on design, offers flexibility to students who wish to experiment with becoming an Engineering Science major.

Objectives of the Minor:

Upon completion of the Engineering Science Minor students will be able to:

  • Collaborate on engineering teams to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems
  • Communicate through the interpretation and creation of engineering drawings
  • Employ the engineering design approach to solving real problems and communicate solutions to a range of audiences
  • Examine public health, safety, welfare, global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors in proposing engineering solutions
  • Describe and identify the ethical and professional responsibilities of engineers in society
