The minor in Environmental Engineering consists of nine (9) units of environmental engineering coursework. At least six (6) units must be selected from the core Environmental Engineering courses. The additional 3 units may be chosen from either the core courses or other graduate environmental engineering courses upon approval of the minor advisor. Depending on the student's background, the minor advisor might recommend preparatory undergraduate courses to be taken to cover prerequisite deficiencies.
A member from the Environmental Engineering graduate faculty will serve as minor committee member for the student's Comprehensive Exam.
College of Engineering
University of Arizona - Main - Tucson
Students who minor in Environmental Engineering must be PhD students at the University of Arizona.
Six (6) units of coursework must be taken from the following list of core Environmental Engineering courses:
A minimum GPA of 3.0/4.0 in all minor courses is required.
With the permission of the student's minor advisor, the student may choose three (3) units of elective Environmental Engineering courses from either the core courses listed above, or the following:
The additional 3 units may also be taken from other related graduate engineering courses upon approval of the minor advisor.
Environmental Engineering PhD students who also minor in Environmental Engineering will take nine (9) units of elective Environmental Engineering courses that are not part of the Environmental Engineering core requirements to complete the minor.
Environmental Engineering Split Minor
If a PhD student chooses two minor subjects (called a split minor) and Environmental Engineering is one of them, then the student must complete a minimum of six (6) units in Environmental Engineering core courses as described in the first list above. Students taking courses in Environmental Engineering as part of a split minor must work with their faculty minor advisor/mentor to determine with of the core courses are most appropriate. A member from the Environmental Engineering graduate faculty will serve as a minor committee member.
