Engineering, Minor

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

We propose that each student declaring a minor do so as early in their education as possible and that each student have appointed by the appropriate engineering program director a designated engineering minor advisor in Engineering Programs who will recommend and approve in writing on a designated form any and all engineering courses taken by the student. It is expected that the student’s primary academic advisor in his/her major will be informed of the courses recommended by the minor advisor and will consult with the minor advisor as appropriate before releasing the student’s academic hold. The program will have sufficient flexibility that in some cases, individually planned hybrid specializations or those outside those currently offered as professional concentration areas for the B.S.-Engineering major (CE, EE, ME), can be accommodated by appropriate selection of courses.

In addition, the awarding of a minor in engineering will require that the student has made a grade of C or better in all courses comprising the 23 credit hours or has a grade point average of 2.5 or above over these courses.

Required Courses:

Students must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5 OR a grade of at least a “C” for each course in the minor.

Additional Credit Hours

Additional credit hours of other ENGR, CE, EE, or ME prefixed courses of 2000, 3000 or 4000 level courses. These courses must include:

  • At least, one additional regular engineering laboratory course selected from ENGR 2411 - Mechanics of Materials Laboratory , ENGR 2421 - Electric Circuits I Laboratory , or any 3000 or 4000-level CE, EE, ENGR or ME laboratory course.
  • No more than 4 credit hours of these additional 12 hours can be 2000-level.
  • No more than 3 credit hours of the 12 can be special problems, student research, independent study, internship, honors senior thesis, or other non-standard courses.
  • The student should be aware that additional credit hours, for example from other engineering, mathematics, or science courses, may be indirectly required to satisfy all formal prerequisite and corequisite requirements for the engineering courses designated for the minor, as per the A-State Undergraduate Bulletin.

Total Required Hours: 23
