Minor in Electrical Engineering

About the Minor

The minor provides students with the foundation needed to understand the diverse areas covered by the electrical engineering major. Our engineers contribute to industry and research in areas that include electronic circuits and systems, lasers and photonics, semiconductor devices, computer and communication networks, biomedical engineering, bioinformatics, robotics, automation and control, and power and energy systems.


The minor assumes that students will have a background in mathematics and physics equivalent to that covered in the first two years of the engineering curriculum. In mathematics, this would include calculus (MATH 121 - MATH 122 and MATH 200), linear algebra, and differential equations. The physics requirements are PHYS 101 and PHYS 102. Courses taken to meet these requirements will not count toward the minor.
