Minors in the School of Science and Engineering

The School of Science and Engineering offers minors in the fields of computer science, general engineering, and mathematics. Each minor is nominally 15 SCH. Students may need to take additional prerequisite courses to enroll in the courses for the minor.

Minor in Computer Science

Students who wish to complete a minor in computer science must complete 15 SCH in computer science beyond what is required for their major degree program. (This minor is not available to students in the BSCSC program.)

Course requirements for the minor in computer science include two required courses:

  • CSC 2302 (1, 2) Data Structures
  • CSC 2303        Advanced Programming

And 9 credits from the following:

  • CSC 3324 Software Engineering I
  • CSC 3326 Database Systems
  • CSC 2304 Computer Architecture
  • CSC 33xx One advanced CSC course

Notes:

(1) CSC 1401 is a prerequisite to CSC 2302 and needs to be taken before beginning the minor.

(2) For BSEMS and BSGE students, CSC 2302 is required as part of their major degree programs. An advanced course in computer science should be taken in place of CSC 2302 for the minor.

Minor in General Engineering

Students who wish to complete a minor in general engineering must complete a minimum of 15 SCH in engineering beyond what is required for their major degree program. (This minor is not available to students in the BSEMS and BSGE programs.)

Course requirements for the minor in general engineering include two required courses:

  • EGR 2301 Statics
  • EGR 2402 Electric Circuits

And 3 courses from the following:

  • EGR 1210 Computer Aided Engineering
  • EGR 2302 Engineering Economics
  • EGR 2311 Dynamics
  • EGR 2312 Mechanics of Materials
  • EGR 3301 Fluid Mechanics
  • EGR 3302 Thermodynamics
  • EGR 3304 Materials Science
  • EGR 3306 Engineering Instrumentation

Note:

Prerequisites must be met before enrolling in these courses.

Minor in Mathematics

Students who wish to complete a minor in mathematics must complete a minimum of 15 SCH in mathematics beyond what is required for their major degree program. (This minor is not available to students in the BSCSC, BSEMS, and BSGE programs).

Course requirements for the minor in mathematics include two required courses:

  • MTH 1312(1) Integral Calculus
  • MTH 2301 Multivariable Calculus

And 9 credits from the following(1):

  • MTH 1304 Discrete Math for Engineers
  • MTH 2303 Linear Algebra
  • MTH 2304 Differential Equations
  • MTH 3301 Engineering Probability and Statistics
  • or EGR 3401 Statistics for Engineers
  • MTH 3302 Complex Variables and Transforms

Notes:

(1) Prerequisites must be met before enrolling in these courses. With prior approval of the SSE coordinator and dean, a student may request that another math-intensive course in SSE at the 2000 level or higher be allowed to satisfy this requirement.
