Minors

Minor in Computer Science

A sample curriculum is available here. It also lists electives that a student can take to develop expertise in one the research concentrations of the department.

 Minor in Mechanical Engineering

A student in electrical engineering, electrical engineering with MSE option or computer engineering can get a minor in mechanical engineering. The mechanical engineering minor requires at least 20 credits of ENME courses numbered 2000 or higher. With prior approval of the department, courses outside of the discipline can be applied to the minor. ENME courses that are required of all engineering students do not count towards a minor in mechanical engineering.

For any questions see the department chair.

 Minor in Computer Engineering

A student in electrical engineering, electrical engineering with MSE option or mechanical engineering can get a minor in computer engineering. Computer engineering minor requires at least 20 credits of ENCE courses numbered 2000 or higher. With prior approval of the department, courses outside of the discipline can be applied to the minor. ENCE courses that are required of all engineering students do not count towards a minor in computer engineering.

Requirements

  • The minor (20-25 credits) is a program of courses in a secondary area of concentration. Individual departments establish requirements for a minor and these are listed in the University of Denver’s Undergraduate Bulletin.  Due to the strict engineering curricula students have minimal opportunities for taking extra courses. Unless a student comes into DU with AP, IB or transfer credit or will take summer courses, adding a minor may mean that additional time is required to complete the degree.
  • Note that a course appearing in more than one discipline may only be counted towards one minor.

Most engineering students will be able to qualify for a minor in math without needing to take any additional courses. Students who get a D in one required math course will not be able to meet the minimum requirement for a minor since D’s are not counted for a minor. A minor in physics can be obtained by taking 6 additional credits. 

 Minor in Electrical Engineering

A student in computer engineering or mechanical engineering can get a minor in electrical engineering. Electrical engineering minor requires the student take ENEE 2222 Advanced Electronics, ENEE 3111 Signals and Systems, and an additional 13 quarter hours of ENEE courses numbered 2000 or higher. With prior approval of the department, courses outside of the discipline can be applied to the minor. ENEE courses that are required of computer engineering or mechanical engineering students do not count towards a minor in electrical engineering.
