Minor in Mechanical Engineering
The purpose of the proposed aggregate courses is to give students from science and other branches of engineering of opportunity to learn the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, to broaden their understanding of science and engineering, and to prepare them for new technological developments such as material science and nanotechnology. Additional knowledge in control and robotics, mechanical design, or thermal-fluids may be acquired through electives. Students interested in the Mechanical Engineering minor must meet with the Program Head of Mechanical Engineering and complete the Mechanical Engineering Minor Program Approval Form [PDF 24 KB]. Revision of the form requires the approval of the Program Head.
The minor is intended for students who have satisfied the following prerequisite requirements:
|Math 226||Calculus I (4)|
|Math 227||Calculus II (4)|
|Phys220/222||General Physics with Calculus I & Lab (4)|
|Phys240/232||General Physics with Calculus III & Lab (4)|
|Chem 115||General Chemistry I: Essential Concepts of Chemistry (5)|
The minor may be satisfied by a minimum of 21 units (not including prerequisite units) distributed as follows:
To earn a minor in Mechanical Engineering, a student must complete at least 12 of the required 21 core and elective units at SFSU. All courses in the minor must be taken with letter grades (CR/NC is not acceptable).
