Product Lifecycle Management Minor

A minor in product lifecycle management (PLM) will expose any Purdue major to manufacturing graphics expertise. Students who complete the minor will gain applied knowledge in current and emerging graphics theories and computer graphics technologies associated with the design, documentation, and manufacture and support of products and related services. 

The PLM minor is open only to any Purdue University West Lafayette campus major.

All courses in the minor must be taken for a grade. P/NP is not an option.
A grade of “C-” or better must be obtained in all PLM minor classes.
Only students pursuing four-year degrees are eligible for the PLM minor.
