EEE offers an undergraduate minor to students majoring in other SEAS departments, upon satisfactory completion of 6 courses selected from a specified list. A minor typically requires a heavier than usual course load. However, a number of eligible courses are EEE, non-EEE, or cross-listed courses that are required by other departments, which may lessen the added course burden for an EEE minor. This is due to the broad and multidisciplinary scope of Earth and environmental engineering, which draws elements from a wide variety of engineering disciplines. Conversely, the knowledge gained from an EEE minor is of value to numerous fields outside of Earth and environmental engineering.
