Product Lifecycle Management Minor

11-12 Credits Required

A minor in product lifecycle management (PLM) will expose any Purdue major to manufacturing graphics expertise. Students who complete the minor will gain applied knowledge in current and emerging graphics theories and computer technologies associated with the design, documentation, and manufacture and support of products and related services.

Requirements for the Minor


  • The PLM minor is open only to any Purdue University West Lafayette campus major.
  • All courses in the minor must be taken for a grade. A grade of “C-” or better is required in all classes. (P/NP is not an option)
  • Only students pursuing four-year degrees are eligible for the PLM minor.
  • Other courses outside of the PLM minor offered by the CGT will not be available for enrollment for non-CGT majors who are accepted in the CGT/PLM minor.


The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.
