Minor in Entertainment Engineering

About the Program

Digital technologies have revolutionized the world of entertainment and created a new field combining the foundations of electrical engineering with entertainment media. This minor is designed for students with the technical literacy to effectively use, as well as develop, new tools for digital content creation and manipulation for entertainment applications.

The entertainment engineering minor consists of a minimum of six (6) required courses and an additional two (2) elective courses.

Entertainment Engineering Option for Non-Engineering Majors

The minor assumes students have a background in mathematics (equivalent to Calculus II). Courses taken to meet these pre-requisite requirements will not count toward the minor.
