This minor is intended to supplement one of Caltech's undergraduate degrees and is designed for students who wish to broaden their knowledge beyond their normal major, especially for those
who wish to join the structural engineering profession after
graduation or pursue a graduate degree in structural mechanics
or structural engineering. Students completing the structural mechanics minor requirements will have the phrase "minor in structural
mechanics" added to their academic transcripts.
The student must complete 54 units of classes selected from Ae/AM/ CE 102 abc, AM/CE 151 ab, Ae/CE 221, Ae/CE 165ab and CE 160 ab, and obtain a grade of B– or higher. Courses taken as part of the structural mechanics minor are counted toward the total 486-unit Institute graduation requirement.
