Minor in Technology

About the Minor

Effective June 15, 2021, new students are no longer being accepted into this minor, however similar options are available. Contact Gerry Willis at gtm23@drexel.edu or 215-895-6253 for additional information.

This minor provides both the breadth and the depth of knowledge in emerging technologies. It consists of a sampling of Engineering Technology courses that would provide students with a greater knowledge and appreciation of emerging technologies. The courses span the range of levels from first year to advanced undergraduate courses. The minor also covers emerging technology fields such as nanotechnology and renewable energy, and emerging technological applications such as 3D printing and Computer Numerical Control (CNC).

The minor will serve students interested in an advance knowledge in emerging technologies or will be working in the technology field but whose majors are not necessarily engineering or engineering technology. These students will gain solid understanding of technology to stay competitive with their peers.

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.
