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. 

Minimum Grades

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.

Minor in Architectural Engineering

The minor in architectural engineering serves students who are interested in building science, engineering and system designs. The minor is intended to expose students to basic building science knowledge, engineering and system concepts, and calculation and design skills.

Minor in Biomedical Engineering 

The minor is open to students rostered in the college who are interested in a field that lies at the interface of medicine, biology, and engineering. The requirements consist of a gateway course plus five elective courses, so students can tailor the minor according to their interests.

Minor in Civil Engineering

The minor in civil engineering serves students who are interested in an introductory exposure to the broad discipline of civil engineering. The minor is intended to expose students to five sub-disciplines of civil engineering.

Minor in Computer Science

Computing skills will increase your marketability in any field. No matter what major you've chosen, you might consider a minor in computer science.

Minor in Creative Technology & Design

The minor is offered through the ATLAS Institute. If you're interested in this minor meet with Curriculum Advisor Dave Kalahar to fill out a CTD Declaration Form.

Minors in Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering

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.

  • Computer Engineering Minor
  • Electrical Engineering Minor
  • Signals and Systems Minor

Minor in Engineering Entrepreneurship

Launched in fall 2019, the minor in engineering entrepreneurship prepares students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to essential entrepreneurship in a startup venture or within a larger corporation. This minor develops entrepreneurial and leadership skills, while introducing you to the multiple facets of entrepreneurship, innovation, creative development and the overall entrepreneurial process.
