This minor provides a foundation in Engineering Science. Students are introduced to the physics background of engineering through two foundational courses, Calculus-Based Physics I (Newtonian Physics, Fluid, and Thermodynamics) and Calculus-Based Physics II (Electromagnetism and Optics). All students in the minor must take Dynamics, which is an intermediate level course in the application of Newton's Laws to engineering systems. Students then must choose three intermediate level courses to become familiar with the analytical methods used in different types of engineering.

Minor requirements include:


    Foundational Courses:


    • PS 131-132 - Calculus-Based Physics I - II
    • or
    • PS 121-122 - General Physics I - II

    • PS 242 - Dynamics

    Choose three of the following courses:

    • PS 231 - Modern Physics
    • PS 241 - Statics
    • PS 243 - Strength of Materials
    • PS 245 - Electrical Circuits
    • PS 346 - Thermodynamics
    • PS 347 - Fluid Dynamics


    Prerequisites: Many of the courses listed for this minor require prerequisites in the Mathematics Department .  Please check the catalogue for details.
