The purpose of a Minor is to expose students to a strong core understanding of a field outside of their own major. In the case where the chosen Major and the Minor overlap significantly the value of the minor is lessened. Therefore, certain additional constraints apply:
Computer Engineering students may not Minor in Computer Science
Electrical Engineering students may only take one CS course which is cross-listed with EE courses. One recommended path for EE students would be to take CS 3500, CS 3505, and CS 3810.
Minors in CS must maintain a 2.5 GPA as computed by taking the best grades achieved in three 3000+ CS courses; the following conditions apply
Additionally, students int he minor are held to the same requirements for Academic Standing as CS Majors.
