Bioengineering Minor (for Engineering Majors)

If interested in the Bioengineering minor, please use the Provost-approved Statement of Intent to Pursue a Campus-Approved Minor. To obtain recognition for the Bioengineering minor, students must obtain Bioengineering department approval and then register in the College of Engineering, Office of the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies, 206 Engineering Hall.

Please refer any curriculum questions to the Bioengineering department office, 1270 DCL, 217-333-1867.

Bioengineering Minor Curriculum:

Please refer to the Provost Office website for further information on declaring a campus-approved minor.

Bioengineering Minor (for Non-Bioengineering Majors)

The Bioengineering minor is essentially a minor in Life Sciences and is, therefore, of little benefit to non-engineering students.

Business Minor

To apply for the minor in Business Administration, review the information located on the College of Business website.

To apply, you must have completed or be concurrently enrolled in the four prerequisite courses listed on the website. After completing the four prerequisite courses and having earned at least 60 credit hours, complete the Statement of Intent to Pursue a Campus-Approved Minor and apply for the minor with the College of Business, Department of Business Administration, in Room 350 Wohlers Hall.

Applications are accepted for fall term only. Applications are only accepted during the month of January of the preceding fall term and are reviewed by the College of Business in February. The College of Business will screen all statements and approve a select number of applicants to pursue the Business minor. You will be contacted at your Illinois email address by the College of Business regarding the decision, usually in late February.

Please Note: Registration for most upper-level BADM courses is restricted to Business majors during priority registration. If there are spots left after priority registration or the date the College of Business sets, the course will open up for registration by non-majors. If you have been approved for a minor in business, you should be given access to register during priority registration with the majors.

Chemistry Minor

Consult the list of course requirements to obtain the Chemistry minor.

Bioengineering students can most easily fulfill the requirements in Option 2, given the Chemistry requirements in the Bioengineering curriculum. For those with AP credit for CHEM 102 and CHEM 104 who received waivers for CHEM 103, you do not have to take these courses to obtain the minor. You may select another Chemistry course to count for the credit needed. You must complete 20 hours total, and six of the 20 total hours must be at the 300 level or above.

You may declare the Chemistry minor by completing the Statement of Intent to Pursue a Campus-Approved Minor. Then go to the Chemistry Department, Room 168 Noyes Lab, to have the form signed. Return the signed form to COE Academic Programs office in Room 206 Engineering Hall.

Please Note: CHEM 494 is listed as restricted to Chemistry majors. Once you are approved for the minor, this restriction is lifted. After you have declared the Chemistry minor, you may contact Kathy Dysart in 203 MSEB or at 333-1440 to get permission to enroll in CHEM 494 if you have difficulty registering.

Mathematics Minor

See the list of course requirements to obtain the Math minor.

You should have successfully completed the calculus sequence before applying for the minor. To apply for the Math minor, you should complete the Statement of Intent to Pursue a Campus-Approved Minor and obtain the signature of a Math advisor in 313 Altgeld Hall. Return the signed form to the COE Academic Programs office in Room 206 Engineering Hall.

Technology and Management (T&M) Minor

The Hoeft Technology & Management Program offers a minor in Technology & Management to undergraduate students in the College of Business and the College of Engineering. Applications are accepted early in the spring semester. You must fit 22 credit hours into the curriculum of your major. Depending upon how many elective credits you receive for T&M courses and how many advanced placement credits you had when you enrolled at the University, you may need to increase your course load, attend summer school, or extend your graduation to complete the program. You will be required to plan out your curriculum showing how you will accommodate the additional courses as part of the application process. In your planning, you should research Bioengineering major course times and plan ahead for any time conflicts. The Bioengineering major needs to be prioritized over any campus minor.

Spanish Minor

Information on requirements to obtain the minor in Spanish is located on the website for the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. You also will find information on opportunities to complete the minor through a Study Abroad semester.

To declare the minor in Spanish, complete the Statement of Intent to Pursue a Campus-Approved Minor, obtain the signature of an advisor in the Spanish department, and return the signed form to the College of Engineering Academic Programs office, Room 206 Engineering Hall.
