Computer Science Minor (for Electrical Engineering majors)
You should minor in computer science if:
- You are great with computers and technology.
- You love working with data.
- You are a critical thinker.
Computer science and electrical and computer engineering are complementary disciplines. Having a minor in computer science will expand your knowledge of software and operating systems.
In a software-driven world, electrical engineers will need to know how to bridge the gap between software and hardware with firmware. This minor will help you to expand your programming skillset, enabling you to produce better firmware, understand software better, and develop better critical and logical thinking skills.
