The College of Engineering and Applied Science currently offers five minors. These minors are open to any undergraduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder. To apply for these minors, you must use the Change of Major Form if you are a student in Engineering and Applied Science, or the Minor Completion Form if you are currently in another college or school at CU-Boulder.
A cumulative GPA of 2.250 or higher is required in the courses that are used to satisfy the requirements for these minors. Each individual course that is counted toward these requirements must be passed with a final grade is of D- or better. However, a C- or better is required in all pre-requisite courses.
Computing skills will increase your marketability in any field. No matter what major you've chosen, you might consider a minor in computer science to enhance your skills in your primary domain.
The following minors provide training in electrical, computer, or energy engineering beyond the training usually received by science, mathematics, and applied mathematics majors. These minors also can broaden the training of students majoring in other engineering and applied science fields.
The CU Energy Engineering Minor aims to prepare students with the background and tools to be leaders in energy technology, policy and research. The minor requirements consist of a selection of technical energy courses, an energy policy course and an interdisciplinary projects course, which is comprised of students who are enrolled in the energy engineering minor, and is focused on the design and analysis of energy technologies from a technical, economic and policy perspective.
The Energy Engineering Minor is open to undergraduate students rostered in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who are interested in broadening their academic portfolio beyond their major with an additional credential in energy engineering. Students not rostered in engineering may wish to pursue the Undergraduate Energy Certificate offered through the Renewable & Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI).
In addition, a Minor in Technology, Arts and Media is offered through the ATLAS Institute with somewhat different requirements. Students who are interested in this minor need to first meet with TAM Curriculum Advisor Dave Kalahar and fill out a TAM Declaration Form.
