Minor in Engineering Management
This minor focuses on the management of technical organizations. The required courses enhance an engineer's resume to show understanding of management and leadership behaviors, economics, and systems engineering and thinking.
While this minor is primarily designed to provide engineering management knowledge and skills to other engineers, with the equivalent science background students from other majors (biomedical engineering science, for example) can also complete this minor.
The common engineering core curriculum prerequisites are required of all students in the college of engineering. Students from other colleges will need the appropriate background prerequisite courses.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements
In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Center. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
