Sustainable Engineering Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Engineering

(Minor Code = SUSE)

A Sustainable Engineering Minor is available to students in the College of Engineering. The minor will be granted on the completion of the following 18 cr hrs.

And 6-credit hours (3crs public policy and 3crs technical) from the following approved elective requirements*

Sustainable Energy Options

Sustainable Design and Construction

Energy Conversion and Storage


* Provided the 18 hrs are successfully completed with a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses, then a Sustainable Engineering 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 Sustainable Engineering 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 Sustainable Engineering Minor.

Finally, as new courses are developed on campus, interested students can request a review by the Undergraduate Chairs Committee of any new courses with substantial engineering sustainability emphasis to be considered as elective options for the minor.  Please contact Jim Jones (jonesjd@purdue.edu) in ME to submit your request.
