Minor in Engineering Leadership
About the Minor
By completing a minor in Engineering Leadership, students will gain practice in self-reflection, mentorship, management, and communication. Students will customize their minor by choosing from one of four available tracks: entrepreneurship, leadership, management, and technology. A culminating project focused on solving engineering problems in the local community will connect students’ technical knowledge with service to others.
This program is currently open to students in engineering disciplines, which include programs from the College of Engineering, College of Computing and Informatics, School of Biomedical Engineering, and students in the Business & Engineering program in the LeBow College of Business.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements
In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
