At Villanova University, engineering students have more than 50 minors and concentrations to choose from. Due to the required course load in your major, however, a minor must be carefully considered and planned for. Interested students should always discuss the minor of interest with their academic advisor before pursuing. In all cases, it is your responsibility to apply for and be accepted into the minor that you would like to pursue.
The courses for the following minors are concentrated within the Mechanical Engineering department:
- Aerospace Engineering—introduces contemporary topics in aerospace engineering to broaden students’ knowledge in this area and provide them with the in-depth training necessary to enter the specialized aerospace field.
- Mechatronics—the study of intelligent programmable systems from an interdisciplinary engineering perspective, coordinating the design, development and control of advanced hybrid-systems. Mechatronics system components include sensors, actuators, processors and software.
