Minor in Business Administration


Most engineers become managers of people and projects. As a result, it is important for engineers to have an understanding of business practices. The Department of Plastics Engineering has worked closely with the College of Management to develop an optional, streamlined business program for undergraduate Plastics Engineering students. Plastics Engineering students can receive a minor in Business Administration by taking only four (4) extra courses. These extra business courses can be taken during the normal school year or during the summer. Most can be taken on-line as well. A total of seven course are actually required to obtain a Business Minor, but three of these six courses count as credits towards the Plastics Engineering B.S. Degree. Therefore only four additional courses are required.
