Mechanical Engineering Minor


Return to Swanson School of Engineering Return to: Swanson School of Engineering

Undergraduate engineering students can earn a Minor in Mechanical Engineering by completing two required courses and three elective courses in one of four focused option areas.

Focus Options/Elective Courses


Additional Information


Depending upon concentration, Bioengineering students have several different possibilities to earn a Mechanical Engineering minor.

  •     Bioimaging & Signals concentration students : none of the courses in any option can be used as a concentration elective. Two courses can be used to satisfy the Bioengineering 2-course, 6-credit advanced engineering/science elective requirement. Two, and possibly three, courses are extra and on your own.
  •     Biomechanics concentration students : MEMS 0024  and MEMS 1028  are concentration electives.
  •  Thermal-Fluids Option

BIOENG 1210  is a required course for BioE majors. MEMS 1071  is a concentration elective. MEMS 1071  can be used to satisfy the Bioengineering 2-course, 6-credit advanced engineering/science elective requirement.

  •   Dynamics Systems Option

BIOENG 1255  is a required course for BioE majors. MEMS 1015  is a concentration elective. MEMS 1045  can be used to satisfy the Bioengineering 2-course, 6-credit advanced engineering/science elective requirement.

  •   Mechanical Design Option

BIOENG 1161   is a required course for BioE majors. MEMS 1033  and MEMS 1047  can be used to satisfy the Bioengineering 2-course, 6-credit advanced engineering/science elective requirement.

  •    Mechanical Measurements Option

BIOENG 1255   is a required course for majors. MEMS 1041  and MEMS 1042  can be used to satisfy the Bioengineering 2-course, 6-credit advanced engineering/science elective requirement.

  •     CE concentration students : all options can use two of the courses to satisfy the Bioengineering 2- course, 6-credit advanced engineering/science elective requirement. At least one other course is extra and on your own.
  •     MPE concentration students : MEMS 0024  and MEMS 1028  are concentration electives.
  • Thermal-Fluids Option

BIOENG 1210   is a required course for BioE majors. MEMS 1071  is a concentration elective. MEMS 0071  can be used to satisfy the Bioengineering 2-course, 6-credit advanced engineering/science requirement.
