The College of Engineering and Applied Science offers the minors below. Some are open to any undergraduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder, and some are restricted to students rostered within the College.
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.
The Biomedical Engineering Minor is open to undergraduate students rostered in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who are interested in an exciting, multidisciplinary field that lies at the interface of medicine, biology, and engineering. The minor requirements consist of a gateway course plus five elective courses, so students can tailor the minor according to their interests.
Through integrated modular coursework, non-business majors are introduced to the essential elements of Marketing, Management, Accounting and Finance.
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 Engineering Management minor is open to undergraduate students rostered in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who are interested in applying their engineering degrees to business and industry. Students will learn the skills necessary to integrate engineering management systems into the engineering and technology environment. A minor in Engineering Management will broaden your knowledge and skills in project management, leadership, marketing, economics, accounting, and finance.
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).
The purpose of the new Undergraduate Minor in Global Engineering is to expand students' understanding of how to operate in an international context from an engineering perspective. This translates to the capacity to work in either an international team from within an office located domestically or internationally. These work environments necessitate that students understand multinational contexts as well as local office and nongovernmental agency contexts.
The Global Engineering Minor is open to undergraduate students rostered in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who are interested in broadening their perspective on the role of engineering beyond their major.
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.
