How hard is it to add a minor?
It depends, but some of the minors fit fairly neatly into the Electrical Engineering and/or Computer Engineering programs. Minors require completion of at least 18 credits, 9 of which need to be upper level and completed here at Michigan Tech.
Check out the list of minors offered in the undergraduate catalog. The page includes links to the minor program audits. It is important to look carefully at the number of credits required, and at what level.
Remember: just like your major, it is your responsibility to make sure you meet all the requirements!
How do I declare a minor?
If you have specific questions about a minor, talk to the minor’s advisor. Sometimes it is the same person as the major’s primary academic advisor, but not always! To formally declare a minor, submit a Curriculum Add/Drop request within MyMichiganTech.
Can I do any minor?
Not quite. Computer Engineering majors (as well as EE/CpE double majors) may not pursue a minor in EE nor CS. The purpose of Computer Engineering is to be a convergence of those two programs, so your coursework has that amount of skill (and more!) built in.
Some minors will fit more neatly into your degree program. For instance, some credits might double-count as electives or fit into your HASS selections. Others will require more work above-and-beyond your degree requirements – but can certainly be worthwhile.
