* Provided the 18 hrs are successfully completed with a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses, then an Energy Minor will be awarded. A grade of “C- or lower” in any of the minor courses is not adequate to fulfill the minor.

Generally, all of the above prescribed minor courses must be taken at the Purdue West Lafayette campus to be eligible for the Energy Minor. The only exceptions to this rule are as follows:

  1. One equivalent transfer course from another university can be used if it is a core course and comes from an ABET-accredited program, OR
  2. One equivalent Purdue substitution may be used if it is deemed equivalent to the prescribed minor course and acceptable by the home School of the student.

No more than one substitution from either of the above two categories is acceptable for the Energy Minor.

Expired Course

Any course without a link to its description is one that has been expired.  However, this course could fulfill the degree requirement historically.
