About the Minor

Many of the companies that hire Texas Tech engineering graduates have international operations, suppliers or customers. Our International Engineering Minor will give students an exposure to other cultures that can benefit their engineering career as they work for these companies. This program allows students to prepare for, document and share their study abroad experience. Overall, the minor provides engineering students with international experience and perspective that will directly benefit their employers and themselves.


Like all other minors, the International Engineering Minor requires a minimum of 18 hours of coursework. Three of those hours must be a foreign language, but only six hours of foreign language can be applied to the minor. Lastly, but not surprisingly, you'll also need an international experience in order to fulfill the minor. With the International Engineering Minor and the International Engineering Program, the whole world is open to you.
