Minor in Engineering Sciences

The overall goal of the Engineering Sciences Minor is to provide insight into what engineers do, and an understanding of the tools and techniques they use. Participants in the engineering sciences minor program will not become engineers, but they should dramatically increase their ability to integrate their skills and communicate effectively with engineering professionals. They will acquire a conceptual understanding of what engineering, engineering design process, technology, and technology-related concepts are.

The program is designed to be an effective minor to supplement students’ non-engineering degree programs. This program is designed for students who are not engineering majors but are interested in understanding “how things work;” and are looking at management, technical marketing, sales, and related careers in an industry such as aviation and aerospace that continues to involve more technology.
