Mechanical Engineering, Minor

Students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, computer science, physics, electrical and computer engineering, biomedical engineering and civil engineering programs have an opportunity to explore mechanical engineering through a minor at Saint Louis University.

To initiate a minor in mechanical engineering, students should consult with a faculty member in SLU's aerospace and mechanical engineering program to discuss the required courses and their prerequisites and how they align with the interests of the student. The completion of a minor in mechanical engineering must be certified by the aerospace and mechanical engineering program as part of the graduation check.

SLU's minor in mechanical engineering requires at least 18 credits of coursework that include a course in Foundations to Engineering Design (MENG 2000 Foundation to Engineering Design (3 cr) and at least five MENG or ESCI courses at the 2000 level or above (beyond the requirements for a major).

Continuation Standards

  • Grades in all MENG/ESCI minor courses must be "C" or better.
  • Students must maintain a minimum 2.00 GPA.
