Computer Engineering Minor

For information, contact the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, 260 Garland Hall, 513-529-0740.

This minor is not open to students majoring in computer engineering, electrical engineering, or engineering management with concentration in electronics and computing.  The objective of this minor is to provide the student with a broad introduction to computer engineering with an emphasis on computer-based solutions to engineering problems. The minor combines a strong base in science, math, computer science, engineering science, and design. After completing this minor, students will be able to design and build computer-based digital electronic systems.

A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 is required for all courses in the minor.  None of these courses may be taken on a credit/no credit basis.
