Five courses are required for the Engineering Management minor. All five courses in the minor must be taken for a grade. Course descriptions are available at:

EM 52, EM153 and EM 54 are courses that can be used by engineering students to fulfill their Social Science distribution requirements. For some engineering majors, it is possible to count two additional EM courses toward the Foundation and Concentration Blocks. Any remaining course required for the EM major would typically be a Free Elective.
