Fully enrolled non-mechanical engineering undergraduate students, who have at least a junior status with a cumulative FIU Grade Point Average of 2.0 or better, may apply to the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering to request a minor in Energy Systems. To earn a minor in Energy Systems students must complete the 16 credit hours work listed below with a minimum grade of “C” in each course.

EGN 3311 Statics 3
EGN 3321 Dynamics 3
EGN 3343 Thermodynamics I 3
EML 3126 Transport Phenomena 3
EML 3126L Transport Phenomena Lab 1 and
EML 4140 Heat Transfer 3

Students who have taken equivalent course/courses will be exempted from taking these courses. However, they 536 College of Engineering and Computing Undergraduate Catalog 2013-2014 need to select courses from the following list to satisfy the minimum requirement of 15 credit hours for the minor:
