This minor provides a background in 3D printing with a particular emphasis on metals used in manufacturing, from part design through additive processes, to properties and component performance.
Audio Engineering is for engineering majors with interest in music technology, recording or sound-editing or majors from any discipline who can meet the prerequisite requirements for the engineering courses in the minor.
Automation and Controls
Automation and controls exposes engineering students to the modern practice of control and automation. The main interdisciplinary component of the minor is between engineering and computer science.
Biomedical Engineering collaborates across engineering disciplines and with cutting-edge medical facilities in Pittsburgh for a strong foundation in both biomedicine and traditional engineering.
BXA: Engineering and Arts
The additional major in Engineering and Arts is designed for students who’d like to incorporate interdisciplinary study in the fine arts with their primary major in engineering.
BXA: Engineering Studies and Arts
The major in Engineering Studies and Arts provides depth and breadth in dual fields to creatively advance maker culture and positively influence our world.
Chemical Engineering combines chemistry, mathematics, physics and biology with its own unique principles of chemical engineering science and process systems engineering to develop new products and manufacturing processes.
Civil Engineering prepares students to plan, design, construct, operate and maintain infrastructure used daily by the public and industry, such as buildings, transportation networks, water systems and energy distribution systems.
Colloids, Polymers and Surfaces
Students explore the science and engineering of fine particles and macromolecules as they relate to complex fluids and interfacially engineered materials.
Electrical and Computer Engineering
This major encompasses a diverse and expanding set of technologies used to create new products and markets such as “smart” cars, cell phones and mobile computing systems, video games and advanced medical systems for imaging, diagnosis, testing and monitoring.
This minor is intended to offer Electrical and Computer Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering students a firm basis for the application of electronic materials in advanced systems.
Engineering and Public Policy
This major imparts a robust understanding of economic, social, historical and political factors needed to solve problems at the interface between technology and society.
Engineering Design, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (EDIE)
The EDIE additional major will provide students the know-how to innovate products around technology and deliver product solutions to the people who need them.
Students who are non-engineering majors can gain knowledge and expertise with a minor in engineering studies through courses such as Introduction to Engineering and Public Policy, Engineering the Materials of the Future, and Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering.
Students work to protect public health and the environment by providing leadership on complex technical and societal issues such as renewable energy, climate change adaptation, provision of safe drinking water and sustainable development.
This minor is intended for engineering students interested in broadening their background in international experiences and global awareness and engagement.
Information Security, Privacy and Policy
Offered by the Department of Engineering and Public Policy in partnership with the School of Computer Science, this minor provides students from all majors with an understanding of security topics and relevant legal and policy issues.
Materials Science and Engineering
Materials Science and Engineering explores the connection between processing, structure and properties of materials to engineer materials that fit the performance criteria for specific applications, which are useful for the technological needs of our society.
Mechanical Behavior of Materials
This minor investigates the solid mechanics with the microstructural basis of flow and fracture and is best suited to students in Civil, Mechanical and Materials Science and Engineering.
This major prepares students to work with the principles of force, energy and motion; they use their knowledge of physical systems, design, manufacture and operational processes to advance the world around us.
Science, Technology and Public Policy
Students who are earning a bachelor of science degree outside of the College of Engineering can work with peers across disciplines to solve challenges where society and technology meet.
Technology and Policy
This minor exposes students to issues at the interface of science, technology and society, and how interdisciplinary approaches are needed to solve complex problems.
