Minor - Engineering

University Campus

Whether you aspire to manage a manufacturing facility, bring new products to market or work in city government, you’ll be more effective if you understand and speak the language of engineering. In this 18-hour minor, you’ll learn the fundamentals that are common to all engineering disciplines.

If you’re not a Biology or Mathematics major, you’re required to take prerequisites, MAT 152 or higher and PHY 221. We recommend that students also take MAT 201, MAT 231, and PHY 222 in preparation for these courses.

As an Engineering minor you will study:

  • Theory and technique of technical graphics
  • The design process
  • Electrical circuits and basic electronics
  • Reliability analysis as applied to the assessment, development and management of product and process design functions
  • Engineering mechanics

Professional development opportunities

  • Co-curricular activities: Become an active member of math club, Tri-Beta Biological Honor Society, Chemistry Club or Student Environmental Awareness.
  • Conferences: Travel to national and local math meetings. Present at the Mathematical Association of America Florida conference.
  • Internships: Our students have interned at the Department of Environmental Protection, National Institutes of Health Academy, Pittsburgh Zoo, Southwest Florida Water Management District and Moffitt Cancer Center.
