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 Mechanical Design. To earn a minor in Mechanical Design students must complete the 16 credit hours work listed below with a minimum grade of “C” in each course.

EGN 3311 Statics 3
EGN 3365 Materials in Engineering 3
EMA 3702 Mechanics and Materials Science 3

and

EMA 3702L Mechanics and Materials Science Lab
EML 3500 Mechanical Design I 3
EML 4501 Mechanical Design II 3

Students who have taken equivalent course/courses will be exempted from taking these courses. However, they need to select courses from the following list to satisfy the minimum requirement of 15 credit hours for the minor:

EML 3036 Simulation Software for Mechanical Engineers 3
EGM 4350 Finite Element Analysis in Mechanical Design 3
EML 4804 Introduction to Mechatronics 3
EML 4806 Modeling and Control of Robots 3
