Economics Minor

Economics is the social science that deals with the production, allocation, and use of goods and services among individuals and/or societies. It’s a terrific complement to the engineering disciplines—especially as the world shrinks and competition for goods and services becomes more global.  

The Economics minor consists of four courses. These are foundational courses, such as Introduction to Econometrics and Comparative Economic Systems. Special topic courses and independent study are also available.

Students who wish to earn a minor in Economics and have it designated on their transcript must successfully complete four courses (16 credits) as listed below.
