Minor in Energy Systems

The School of Mechanical Engineering now offers a 15-hour multidisciplinary minor in Energy Systems. This minor is available to students majoring in Mechanical Engineering. Requirements include courses which provide depth in an area relevant to energy related to Mechanical Engineering. The minor also includes requirements for courses which cut across disciplines. These courses are intended to add breadth of knowledge in areas outside the student's major but important to energy systems. A terminal "capstone" or project course provides an opportunity for students from multiple disciplines to work together in multidisciplinary teams on a significant project in the energy area.
