Naval Engineering is defined as a field of study and expertise that includes all engineering and sciences as applied in the research, development, design, construction, operation, maintenance and logistic support of surface and subsurface ships, craft, aircraft, and vehicles (manned and autonomous) used by the Navy for the Nation’s defense. It inherently includes multiple engineering disciplines, and hence it is open to all students in the College of Engineering who meet the following requirements.
A minor in Naval Engineering consists of not less than 18 semester-credit-hours. For successful completion of the Minor, students must maintain a 2.0 in-Minor GPA with a minimum grade of C– or better in all courses that the student counts towards the minor.
The broad range and large number of these courses reflects the multiple engineering disciplines inherent in Naval Engineering.
