How to Declare (Admission and Declaration Process):
Contact the ITVD program director or department program coordinator, as course offerings have changed.
Students must obtain at least a C- in the MATH 124, MATH 125, PHYS 161, and CHEM 121 prerequisite courses and an overall GPA in them of 2.0 or higher to be considered. AP scores are converted to GPA as follows: 5 = A; 4 = B; 3 = C. Decisions are based on the portfolio and cumulative GPA in the prerequisite courses, but successful completion of other required Minor courses, GPA in the Minor, and overall GPA are also considerations. Applications decisions will also be based upon the available space for students within the Engineering and Design Department.
Acceptance decisions will also be based on an essay (500 words or less) explaining why you want a minor in vehicle design and a portfolio of your work including pictures and description of up to three pages. The portfolio should show examples of projects or products/parts that you have designed, fabricated, assembled or produced. A design or analysis of a vehicle or vehicle related process, such as biofuel production, may be substituted for physical components produced. This is to facilitate a diverse student body who may apply for the minor.
Applications are due by noon on the Friday during the first week of fall quarter school to Ross ET 204. Only complete, on-time applications will be considered. Applicants will be notified by the end of the following week. Applications decisions will also be based upon the available space for students within the Engineering and Design Department.
A grade of C- or better is required for a student’s major or minor courses, and supporting courses for majors and minors.
