This minor option will provide students enrolled within the College of Engineering and Computer Science with a grouping of courses/electives that will provide academic depth in the field of energy related systems in 4 different but related tracks.

Admission to the energy systems minor is by permission of an academic advisor and requires students to be enrolled in a B.S. program in Engineering within the College of Engineering and Computer Science.

Students with sufficient technical background from other Syracuse University Academic Units may be considered for admission to the Minor in Energy Systems and such decisions will be made by the E&CS Energy Systems Committee.

Track-Specific Courses

In addition, 3 track-specific courses must be taken from a list of required and elective courses for each of the 4 individual tracks. These 4 track specific lists are available from an academic advisor.

1. Thermo-Mechanical Energy Systems Track

2. Nuclear Energy Track

3. Renewable Energy Track

4. Electric Power Track

Select any 2 electives from the following list:

plus 1 elective from any of the 4 Energy Systems Tracks. (Note: You can take either ELE 514 or ELE/NUC 530 but not both)


Because MEE students take ECN 203  as a required SS/H course they must take another SS/H elective as part of their minor.
