4.  Students must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in a minor program.

 Course requirements include:

•     A minimum of three courses from the School of Engineering & Computer Science (i.e., CIVL, ECPE, EMGT, ENGR, or MECH department prefixes), adding up to a minimum of eight units.  (It is strongly recommended that students take ENGR 10 as one of these three classes.  This course is intended for the freshman year.)

Goal:  To develop and be able to articulate an understanding of the role of technology in industrial/postindustrial society.

•     At least one, and no more than two of the "Computing Classes."

General Comments:

General Education:  With careful planning, it is possible for a student to complete some General Education requirements with Technology Minor courses.

Technology Minor Application:  To complete a minor, a student should submit a minor work sheet proposal to their faculty advisor.  The Registrar must receive an approved copy of the work sheet before a notation of completion of a minor can be placed on the student's transcript.
