For Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronic Engineering majors, the Manufacturing Minor requires only three more courses (SCMS 306, SCMS 441, and either MFGT 216 or MFGT 260 or MFGT 201). For Mechanical Engineering majors, one of these courses can be used to fulfill the technical elective required for the Mechanical Engineering major. If a Mechatronic Engineering major chooses the MFGT 201 option then MECH 200 will also have to be taken.
For Business Administration majors with an option in Production and Operations Management, the Manufacturing Minor requires only eight units/four more courses (MECH 100, MECH 100L, MFGT 160, and either MFGT 216 or MFGT 260 or both MECH 200 and MFGT 201).
