UT Austin offers several opportunities for students to supplement their Mechanical Engineering studies through optional certificate programs or a minor degree. A certificate program is a set of courses that allows a student to focus on an area of study in addition to their major.
Non-Engineering Certificate Programs
University-wide requirements for transcript-recognized undergraduate certificate programs and a listing of the available certificate options can be found in the university's Undergraduate Catalog.
Students in mechanical engineering are allowed to minor in any field in which the university offers a major outside of the Cockrell School of Engineering. A minor is not required as part of any engineering degree program. For more information on minors, visit the Cockrell School website.
