Students who wish to pursue a minor must complete an application, which is available in the Office of the University Registrar or in the Engineering Student Services Center.
This program permits undergraduate students to specialize in biomechanics, a subfield of biomedical engineering that blends the life sciences with traditional engineering disciplines. Nearly every department within the college has faculty working in this area. The student must complete the following 16 credits:
Required Courses (10 credits)
Choose any two of the following courses
Electives (6 credits)
A list of approved electives and other information are available in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, 226 Aerospace Building.
Students considering biomedical engineering as a career should be aware that graduate education is often required. The College of Engineering offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biomedical engineering.
This minor, administered by the Department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering, provides the academic background in the application of computers to scientific and engineering problems and to prepare students for possible graduate study in computer-related disciplines. Computer engineering majors (CEN) in the CISE and ECE departments and computer and information sciences majors are not eligible for this minor in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences or of Business Administration.
The minor requires a 2.5 GPA to apply and completion of the following courses with grades of C or better:
At least three of the CIS, COT, CDA and COP courses must be taken at UF.
This minor, administered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is designed for engineering students who desire additional knowledge in the area of electrical engineering.
To be admitted to the minor, students are expected to meet the admission requirement of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Students pursuing the BSEE or BSCEN degree are not eligible for this minor.
The minor requires the completion of 15 credit hours of EEL-prefixed courses at the University of Florida with a grade of C or better. EEL 3003 and 3111C will not both count toward the requirements of the minor. At least one course must be at the 4000 level.
A minor (with certificate) in environmental studies is available to anyone pursuing a major in the following engineering degree programs:
The program is designed for students who are concerned about environmental issues. Electives can be structured around a selected environmental theme, to provide in-depth experience in a practical environmental problem of national or international concern.
Students must take a minimum of 14 semester hours of environmental courses; at least one course must be from each of the biological, physical and social sciences areas with a minimum of six semester hours in one area.
The college also offers a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering administered by the Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences. Generally, students fulfilling the requirements for this degree would satisfy all requirements for the environmental studies certificate. These students will be awarded the certificate if they choose.
Students interested in the minor should contact the Environmental Studies Office in 210 Carr Hall and register their intended course of study to ensure that the certificate will be awarded upon graduation.
This minor, offered through the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, is designed for engineering and science students who desire knowledge in materials science and engineering. Materials concerns are becoming extremely critical in engineering design and analysis. New materials are needed for microelectronic packages, biomedical applications, super-conducting films, tool bit materials, cutting tools, construction, fuel-efficient engines and many other industrial and scientific applications. The minor provides students with the academic background to understand the design, selection and processing of materials. Students are required to complete a minimum of 15 credit hours of materials-related courses that complement their degree program. Students should contact an adviser in 108 Rhines Hall for additional information.
The packaging science program offers undergraduate engineering students the opportunity to obtain a minor in packaging science. The minor program is designed to complement engineering studies to help prepare students for careers related to packaging. Students must successfully complete 15 credit hours from a list of preselected courses that provide a focus on applied packaging knowledge, technology and skills. This program is administered through the Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department.
This certificate program provides academic background for careers in sales, managerial and entrepreneurial pursuits. The program is designed to broaden the scope of the engineer, encouraging effective communication with other professionals and providing the business fundamentals necessary to promote new technologies. The certificate is available to engineering majors only.
For additional information and an application, students should contact the associate dean for academic programs in 312 Weil.
Students pursuing a sales engineering certificate must complete the following courses:
Core Requirements (4 Courses)
And one of the following courses:
*Required by the College of Engineering for the baccalaureate degree.
Required Electives (2 Courses) Two of the following courses:
