Interschool Minor in Energy (SHSS)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments

Any thoughtful discussion of the challenges faced in the 21st century will refer to energy. Rensselaer is uniquely able to offer students in any undergraduate major an opportunity to learn about the wide variety of issues involved in understanding energy. The interschool minor in energy includes fundamental courses in architecture, engineering, management, science, and the humanities and social sciences. Any student wishing to develop a multidisciplinary background in energy should consider this minor.

The minor requires a minimum of four courses. Three of these courses, ENGR 1200 Engineering Graphics and CAD, MANE 4960 Topics in Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, or Engineering Physics, and ERTH 4400 Energy and Mineral Resources, are required.

If any of the above courses are also required for a student’s major, the student should substitute an additional course from Option Two below. At least one more course must also be taken from Option One.
