Undergraduate students of the university who are not majoring in EEE or in ECE have the option to take a Minor in both the specialization. A Minor in Electrical engineering branch that includes in minor in both EEE and ECE can be advantageous to those undergraduate students who wish to augment their major with that of electrical engineering courses. Specifically, the students of other branches of engineering such as computer science, mechanical, civil and chemical engineering have an opportunity to expand their breadth of study in engineering disciplines and for those students from non-engineering branches of study can explore the engineering aspects and applications of their major. A minor in Electrical engineering can help them to acquire academic background for higher studies in electrical engineering branch and equip them with practical applications of electrical engineering through laboratory and simulation experience.
