Minors

The Electrical Engineering Department offers 3 minors – Electronics and Systems, Nanotechnology, and Information Assurance

 

University Requirements for all Minors

  1. The student must be seeking a baccalaureate degree from the University of Connecticut.
  2. The student must earn a C (2.0) or better in each course in the minor.
  3. The total number of credits in the approved courses must be at least 15.

Applying for a minor

  1. Declare your minor at ppc.uconn.edu
  2. Submit final plan of study during final semester.    In StudentAdmin, navigate to the following path: SA Self Service > Student Center > Academic Requirements (under the drop down menu at the left) > “Submit Final Plan of Study” button 

 

Information Assurance Minor

The information assurance minor is designed to offer a basic understanding of computer security and information assurance to support the increased demand for information security professionals.

Minor Requirements:

Students in any major may earn this minor.  However, students who are not majors in the School of Business may only earn one minor offered by the School of Business. Students who are not majors in the School of Business are restricted to no more than 24 credits of coursework offered by the School of Business. At the most, two OPIM courses taken toward the Information Assurance minor can be counted toward the Business major. OPIM 4895 and OPIM 4899 must be taken for 3 or more credits each if any of those courses are used toward the Information Assurance minor.
