Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Department of Mechanical Engineering

Minor in Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a minor in Mechanical Engineering. The detailed requirements are listed below:

  1. Four ME courses at the 200 level or higher with a combined GPA of at least 2.0 in these four courses.
  2. One of four courses selected from the following list: ME 204 (Mechanical Design I), ME 205 (Advanced Mechanical Design), ME 211 (Computational Methods), ME 241 (Fluids and Thermal Sciences Laboratory), ME 242 (Solids and Materials Laboratory), and ME 251 (Heat & Power).*

*Note: Prerequisites for upper level ME courses generally include MTH 161-164, and PHY 121-122 (or at least PHY 121). Some courses may also require ME 120 (Statics), ME 121 (Dynamics), or ME 123 (Thermodynamics).

ME course selection and prerequisite courses must be discussed with an ME faculty member; the current advisor for ME minors is Prof. Lambropoulos, Hopeman 236, x54071. For further information, contact Prof. Lambropoulos or Ruth Eberlin, ME Undergraduate Coordinator (x54753, Hopeman 235).
