Engineering Leadership Development Minor

University Park, College of Engineering (E L D)

This interdisciplinary minor is designed to provide engineering students with critical principles and skills. Engineering graduates must demonstrate the ability to assume leadership roles in a competitive technologically complex global society. There are increasing demands for engineers to be able to deal effectively with other people, including the ability to work in teams and to interact with customers and other organizations on both national and international levels. Students will employ engineering case studies in active and collaborative classroom settings to develop these skills. The minor consists of 18 semester hours. A grade of C or better is required in all minor courses. Students in all engineering majors are eligible. For admission to the minor, students must have completed ENGR 408(2).
