The Minors in Electrical Engineering and the Minor in Computer Engineering 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. Each of these minors can bring significant career benefits to majors in science or other engineering programs.
Admission and Constraints
Any degree candidate who has earned at least 54 credits, with a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.000 and a minimum GPA of 2.5000 in the major, may request admission to a minor in Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering from the chairperson of the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. At least 19 credits of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) courses must be taken, following a plan of study approved by an advisor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and signed by the department’s chairperson. At least half of the credits required for the minor must be taken at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, and the GPA in the minor must be at least 2.000.
A minor must be completed at the time of the degree and will be so noted on the student’s transcript. A student cannot be readmitted to the University to complete only a minor.
