Honors Engineering Leadership Minor


Return to College of Engineering Return to: College of Engineering

A coursework and experiential program is offered by the College of Engineering leading to a minor in Honors Engineering Leadership. The objective of the Honors Engineering Leadership Minor is to help engineering students learn leadership, interpersonal, and communication skills necessary to apply their technical skills in real life situations. The elements of the minor program are entrepreneurial basics, leadership and communication skill development, organizational and social psychology, service learning, and a capstone leadership experience. This minor is restricted to College of Engineering students (including Biosystems Engineering majors) in the Chancellor’s Honors Program or the Haslam Scholars Program. Students not in one of these university honors programs but admitted to an engineering honors concentration are also eligible.

The minor requires 18 hours plus non-credit capstone service and leadership activities.
