(Minor Code = MECH)

A minor in Mechanical Engineering is available to students in the Schools of Engineering, students in Industrial Management - Engineering (664), or in the Physics Department. A ME Minor will be granted on the completion of the following 22 hrs and the required prerequisites*.


Provided the 22 hrs are successfully completed with a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses, then a ME Minor will be awarded.

Generally, all of the above prescribed minor courses must be taken at the Purdue West Lafayette campus to be eligible for the ME 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 School of Mechanical Engineering.

No more than one substitution from either of the above two categories is acceptable to be eligible for the ME Minor.

*Minimum Prerequisites and/or Corequisites include: MA 16500 , MA 16600 , MA 26100 , MA 26500  (or MA 26200 ), MA 26600  (or MA 30300 ); PHYS 15200 , PHYS 24100  (or 251) (totals 25 hours)
