This minor is designed to provide students with a variety of management courses valuable in technical environments. Students take courses to understand the many organizational elements and functions composing industrial operations. Students completing this minor will develop a broad-based, cross-sectional/functional understanding as a "generalist" management professional. To obtain a minor in a degree or concentration in the Department of Technology, students must take at least nine credits in the minor beyond those used in their major, technical or professional courses in another degree in the Department of Technology, or another minor. Students can obtain only one minor in a degree or concentration in the Department of Technology, and that minor cannot be in another concentration in their degree. Only six transfer credits can be used toward a minor in a degree or concentration in the Department of Technology and they must be equivalent to courses in the minor. Transfer courses are subject to review by the minor advisor and subject matter expert. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by a vote of the Department faculty.
