Electrical Engineering students are automatically granted with a minor in math. The rest of the students in the College of Engineering are not required to choose a minor. However, many students choose to pursue a minor for reasons such as personal interest and increasing marketability to employers.
The most common minors engineering students select are math, business, or technical writing. The requirements for a minor are listed below:
General Track (for students who desire a broad grounding in business)
MBA Preparation Track (for students considering pursuing an MBA)
Classes used to meet minor requirements cannot count toward major requirements at the same time. This rule does not affect minors requiring UNT or College of Engineering core requirements such as math classes.
Example 1: Joe is a Construction Engineering Technology major who wants to minor in Business Foundations following the general track. Because ACCT 2010 is a major requirement for CNET majors, Joe cannot use ACCT 2010 for his Business Foundations minor.
Example 2: Angela is a Computer Engineering major who wants to minor in Math. Since all of Angela’s math courses are UNT or College of Engineering core requirements, she will be able to use those classes for her Math minor.
If you have questions about this rule, please contact an advisor.
UNT offers many other minors than those listed above. Please consult the University Catalog or talk to an advisor for more information.
