Minor in Mechanical Engineering

Are you already going for a different degree in engineering or the natural sciences?  Then a minor in Mechanical Engineering will complement any degree program such as:

  • electrical engineering
  • civil engineering
  • environmental engineering
  • computer science

A minor will give you a broad understanding of mechanical engineering that you can use in your future career or to apply to other disciplines.
