Minor in Automation Engineering
New Minor in the School of Computing
Automation Engineering is unique, and merges the fundamentals of electrical, electronic, mechanical, environmental, computer, information and instrumentation science, engineering, technology, and related applications. The minor introduces students to green engineering and prepares students for automation related careers in process control, manufacturing, computerized hardware/software integration, and sustainable automated systems. The minor requires an undergraduate research component that allows the student to engage in actual research related to automation within the research laboratory.
The requirements for a minor in Automation Engineering require a total of 18 hours as follows:
|230/L||Instrumentation Lab||2 hrs|
|396||Engineering Laboratory Internship||3 hrs|
|499||Undergraduate Research||3 hrs|
|316||Digital Communication Systems||3 hrs|
|477/L||Control Systems/Lab||4 hrs|
