The Minor in Mathematics is offered to those students who wish to expand their background and understanding of mathematics. A mathematics minor will strengthen a student’s specialty, make his or her degree more attractive to potential employers, and enhance the preparedness of the student for graduate school.
To qualify for a Minor in Mathematics, a student must take at least 31 credits in eligible courses. Sixteen of these credits must be earned in residence at MSOE. Six of the 9 approved course credits must come from courses not specifically required for the student’s major and must be earned in residence at MSOE. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 is required for mathematics courses counted towards the minor.
Approved courses used to fulfill program elective requirements may also be applied towards the minor. For further questions or information, please contact the department chair.
Some of the approved courses are offered every year and some only if there is sufficient interest. There is no guarantee of availability of any particular course in any particular quarter. Future changes in course offerings that will meet the requirements of the minor will be indicated in the Undergraduate Academic Catalog.
Alternatives for specific programs: MA 262 is replaced by MA 3610 and MA 3620 in the biomedical and electrical engineering programs, respectively.
