Is a minor in computer engineering right for me?

Do you like microcontrollers and how they operate? Would you be interested in programming your own circuits and systems? Then this minor is good for you. Minoring in computer engineering is a great way to round out your education with highly sought after computer hardware skills. CS majors would only have to add 14 credits to their majors for the minor in computer engineering.

When should I declare a minor?

By the end of your freshman year, since it takes a minimum of 4 semesters to complete the required courses. Please talk with your advisor before declaring a minor.
