Students must complete a minimum of 12 units as listed under the course requirements. All of these units must be outside the requirements for the students major, i.e., the same courses cannot be listed both on the minor and the major forms. ENGR 102 or ME 172 (3 units) and ISE 103 (3 units) are required for all students taking this minor. Students also take one of the Environmental Studies or Business courses listed below. In consultation with an advisor from the Department of General Engineering (Interdisciplinary), students must select one additional elective course. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure that the prerequisites for each course are met. Students in majors other than engineering will probably need to take additional courses to meet prerequisites for the courses required for this minor. This sequence of courses is the recommended pattern for engineering majors.
University Graduation Requirements
To be awarded a minor, at least 12 units of coursework must be completely distinct and separate from the coursework in the major, and coursework for the minor must include a minimum of 6 upper-division units (University Policy S16-4). Minor preparation or support courses do not count toward the 12 distinct units. Of the coursework for the minor, at least 6 units completed in residence at SJSU. The minimum aggregate GPA for all coursework required for the minor must be at least 2.0.
