For an example of what courses a student would take to earn these degrees, see the 2017 Engineering Advising Booklet.
Students may elect to earn a minor in these engineering-related areas:
Computational and Applied Mathematics: The departmental minor in Computational and Applied Mathematics develops a range of skills in mathematical modeling, analysis, and scientific computing that complements any major in science, engineering and economics.
Energy and Water Sustainability: Sustainability encompasses an approach to design and decision-making that takes into account the economic, social and environmental implications of human activities. This interdisciplinary minor studies the design of safe, secure, sustainable energy and water resources.
Engineering Design: The Engineering Design minor is open to any student earning a major in any department in the School of Engineering. In earning this minor, students will work on projects in highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams and will gain enhanced engineering, leadership and communication skills.
Financial Computation and Modeling: The interdisciplinary minor in Financial Computation and Modeling (FCAM) prepares students for quantitative positions in the finan- cial industry. Students are prepared in the advanced quantitative methodologies as well as in the basics of financial markets.
Global Health Technologies: The minor in Global Health Technologies (GLHT) offers a unique, multidisciplinary program to educate and train students to reach beyond traditional disciplinary and geographic boundaries to understand, address and solve global health disparities.
Statistics: In the modern age of information and data science, the ability to understand, process, analyze and interpret data is critical in every area of human inquiry. The minor in statistics is designed to complement a student s primary area of study. Two tracks are offered: Track A is designed for students with strong mathematical and computational interests; Track B develops a broad understanding of and appreciation for the correct use of statistical methodologies.
Mathematics: The departmental minor in Mathematics develops specific analytical problem solving skills, as well as a logical perspective that is valuable in many science and engineering disciplines.
