In addition to their primary area of study, undergraduate Engineering students have the opportunity to study one of the Minors offered by departments/schools/centers in some of the most interesting areas in the profession today.
Engineering Minors allow students to gain interdisciplinary experience and exposure to concepts and perspectives that may not be a part of their degree program—thus widening their understanding of the engineering profession and the issues that impact engineers.
Upon completion of an Engineering Minor, students will also be better equipped to perform interdisciplinary research.
Engineering Minors can generally be completed within a regular degree – some extra courses may be required depending on Minor offering department/school/centre. A separate certificate shall be issued on completion of the Minor discipline requirements. Minor is an additional credential a student will earn if s/he does additional learning of 5 courses in a discipline other than her/his major discipline.
KLE Technological University is offering following UG Minor programmes:
- Minor in Entrepreneurship
- Minor in Electronics
- Minor in Computer Science & Engineering
- Minor in Innovation and Product Development
- Minor in Robotics and
- Minor in Automotive Engineering
The two courses together provide multi-disciplinary, systems-perspective to problem solving. These courses force a systems-perspective by using a `complete’ product development process, i.e., the students must take a product from its idea phase to manufactured product. Students no longer focus on individual parts at the expense of the entire system. These courses establish the fact that an innovation in undergraduate course work will have profound implications on students, essentially enabling them to handle real- world problems. The key takeaway from these courses for the young designers would be to provide an orderly process for organizing an ill-structured design activity in order to support making decisions and trade-offs among possibly competing solutions.
