Engineering Corporate Practice (MECP)

The Minor in Engineering Corporate Practice (MECP) is open to engineering undergraduate students in their junior and senior years. The College of Engineering is collaborating closely with the Mendoza College of Business and the College of Arts and Letters to offer this unique and differentiated experience to better prepare you for your future careers while exploring the intersection of engineering and business-related topics. The program is administered through the college’s Integrated Engineering and Business Practices Program.

The required course work comprises five classes, two of which may count toward your engineering degree requirements (either EG 40421 or EG 40422 as your program allows, plus an ECON course to be counted as the University social science requirement). In total, three courses must be taken above and beyond your degree requirements. The complete set of MECP course requirements include:

•    EG40421 or EG4442 (Integrated Engineering and Business Fundamentals)

•    EG40422 (Advanced Integrated Engineering and Business Concepts)

•    Economics Course

•    BAEG 20100 / ACCT 20100 (Accountancy I)*  

•    BAEG 20150 / FIN 20150 (Corporate Financial Management)*

* Accounting and Finance cannot be taken simultaneously.

For Economics, you may not count AP credit toward the minor and must take one of several economics courses available through the College of Arts and Letters or Mendoza College of Business. Examples of courses that can meet this requirement include but are not limited to:

•    Principles of Microeconomics (ECON 10010,10011,20010, or 20011)

•    Principles of Macroeconomics (ECON 10020 or 20020)

•    Intermediate Micro Theory (ECON 30010)
