Minors

Students may choose to complete the following minors in addition to their Civil Engineering degrees. In most cases, Civil Engineering students may select technical electives or humanities, social science and multicultural electives to partially fulfill the requirements shown below. Please consult the University of Toledo course catalog for specific coursework requirements on these and other minors:

Minor in Business 
Engineering students may earn a Minor in Business by earning a C or better in a total of six business courses (18 credit hours) and by satisfying an economics requirement. The economics requirement for the minor can be fulfilled with the completion of MIME 2600 - Engineering Economics, which also counts as a technical elective. Please see the College of Business Administration for more details.

The College of Business Administration is also pleased to announce a new minor in Entrepreneurship, Small Business and Family Business for non-majors. For more details, please see the Entrepreneurship minor for non-majors website.

Minor in Biology 
A minimum of 22 hours of biology (BIOL) courses is required for a minor in Biology. The 22 hours must include: BIOL 2150, 2160, 2170 and 2180, and 12 hours of 3000-level or higher Biology courses. Note that 9 hours of 3000-level BIOL courses may count as technical electives for students not pursuing the pre-med option. Interested students should contact the Biology department for more details.

Minor in Chemistry 
A minimum of 22 hours of chemistry (CHEM) courses is required for a minor in Chemistry. The 22 hours must include: CHEM 1230, 1240, 1280, 1290, 2410, 2420, 2450 and 2470. All Bioengineering students are required to take CHEM 1230, 1240, 1280 and 1290; students pursuing the pre-med option are also required to take CHEM 2410, 2420, 2450 and 2470. Therefore all Bioengineering students complete 10 hours of Chemistry and must complete 12 more hours for a minor in Chemistry; 9 of these hours may count as technical electives. Pre-med students complete 18 hours of Chemistry and must complete only 4 more hours for a minor in Chemistry; 3 of these hours may count as technical electives. Interested students should contact the Chemistry department for more details.

Minor in Foreign Languages 
A minimum of 21 - 22 hours is required for the minor in French, German, Japanese or Spanish. In the modern languages, all course work must be in the same language and at the 3000-level or higher. Some courses may also be used as Humanities electives. Interested students should contact the Foreign Languages Department for more details.

Minor in Mathematics 
A minimum of 22 hours of mathematics (MATH) courses is required for a minor in Mathematics. The 22 hours must include: MATH 1860, 1890, 2850, and one of 3860, 3610 OR 4680. The remaining hours must be courses that are acceptable toward a major in Mathematics, and must be approved by an advisor in the Department of Mathematics. Bioengineering students are required to take MATH 1850, 2850 and 3860; therefore students must take MATH 1890 and 8 hours of upper level MATH courses that may count as technical electives. Interested students should contact the Mathematics department for more details.

Minor in Music 
A minimum of 22 hours is required for the minor in music; 25 hours is required for a minor in the Recording Arts. Students electing to pursue a minor in music must choose one of the following areas of concentration: Jazz, Instrumental, Vocal, Keyboard, Music Theory, Music History or Recording Arts. Interested students should contact the Music Department for more details.

Minor in Renewable Energy 
A minimum of 21 hours is required for the renewable energy minor. The 21 hours must include: PHYS 3400, GEPL/EEES 2200, CHEM 3810, ECON 3240 or PSC 4340, a minimum of 3 hours of approved coops in a renewable energy related area and 6 hours of other approved courses. Interested students should visit the Office of Undergraduate Research website for more details.
