Robotics Minor - Program Requirements

(HEGIS: , CIP: 14.3501 Industrial Engineering)

Completing the Robotics Minor Program

Academic Requirements

Students must be in good academic standing. Minimum GPA for minor completion is 2.000 in minor courses.

Minors are awarded in conjunction with a major. All university degree requirements must be met upon completion.

Academic Advice

Students should consult with an academic advisor to determine how to best incorporate a minor within their major program of study.

Prerequisite Courses

There are no specific course prerequisites for admission but note that some of the courses have their own specific prerequisites and therefore might not be available to all students in the minor.

Required Courses

The curriculum includes six courses related to general robotics, program-related robotic project design, and related out-of-program courses offered across all SEAS departments.

Note that four of the six courses are upper division, as courses specific to this area are typically taught at the 300 and 400 level.

At least three courses applied for the minor cannot be used to fulfill any other program requirements (UB Curriculum, major, or other minor). Also, some of the courses have their own specific pre-requisites and therefore might not be available to all students in the minor.

Lower Division Courses (Required):

EAS 208 Dynamics
EAS 230 Engineering Computations or EAS 240 Introduction to Programming for Engineers or CSE 115 Programming Course for Engineers

Upper Division Courses (Required):
