# Graduate Minor in Computational Engineering

## About the Graduate Minor

The graduate minor in computational engineering gives students pursuing a graduate degree in the College of Engineering an opportunity to develop core computational and mathematical competencies to complement their coursework in engineering.

Successful completion of the minor requires that students take five courses (15.0 credits). At least three courses must come from the three of core subject areas; the student must take at least one course in each of the three core subject areas. The remaining two courses may be either core courses or elective courses.

The distinction between core and elective courses is that core courses are intended to be accessible to any College of Engineering graduate student without prerequisites. Elective courses, on the other hand, may require additional prerequisites, and may be suitable only for students in certain academic disciplines or with certain academic backgrounds.

### Admission Requirements

Admission to the minor requires enrollment in a College of Engineering graduate program. All College of Engineering graduate students, including BS/MS students, may pursue the minor.
