School of Science & Engineering: Electrical and Computer Engineering > Minor

Minor in Electrical/Computer Engineering - 19-20 credits

The minor in Electrical/Computer Engineering is intended for students majoring in the following programs:

  • Astronomy
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • Environmental Geochemical Science
  • Geology
  • Mathematics
  • Physics

The Electrical/Computer Engineering minor will provide these science majors with fundamental knowledge of electronic instrumentation and/or computer hardware and related software that they may encounter during their careers. Through lectures and hands-on labs, science students will gain experience working in an environment that resembles what they will face in the work force.
