Mechanical Engineering B.S.M.E.

Eight-Semester Degree Program

The following section contains the list of courses required for the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree and a suggested sequence. Not all courses are offered every semester, so students who deviate from the suggested sequence must pay careful attention to course scheduling and course prerequisites. Students interested in obtaining a sequencing schedule of courses may contact the Mechanical Engineering office.

Students wishing to follow the eight-semester degree plan should see the Eight-Semester Degree Policy in the Academic Regulations chapter for university requirements of the program.

Either the science elective in the second semester of Year 1 or the science elective in the first semester of Year 2 must include PHYS 2074. Other science electives should be chosen from an approved list. See the mechanical engineering office.
