Minors in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering
The Minor in Electrical Engineering and the Minor in Computer Engineering are designed to allow students with quantitative and scientific aptitudes and interests to acquire a basic level of competence in a particular area of electrical engineering or computer engineering. One of these minors can bring significant career benefits to majors in science or other engineering programs.
