Engineering Core (9 cr)


Required of all mechanical engineering students)

Advanced Mechanical Engineering Courses (6 cr)


Students must take two upper level mechanical engineering courses. One must come from the solid mechanics stem and one must be from the thermal science stem.

Course Sequence


Engineering courses are to be taken with careful attention paid to prerequisites. A student who receives a grade lower than a “C” in a Foundation, Engineering Core, or Mechanical Engineering course may not use that course to satisfy a prerequisite for another Mechanical Engineering course.

A student must declare a major in Mechanical Engineering and successfully complete (grade of “C” or better) the following prior to taking any 300 or higher level Mechanical Engineering course:

  1. All Basic Skills requirements
  2. All 100 level Foundation courses
  3. All 100 level Engineering Core courses

The following must be successfully completed (grade of “C” or better) prior to taking any 400 level Mechanical Engineering course:

  1. All Foundation courses
  2. All Engineering Core courses
  3. All lower division (100 and 200 level) Mechanical Engineering courses

The waiver of requirements, transfer credit, and/or fulfillment of requirements by subsequent courses are to be submitted by the student for departmental approval by filling out a course petition form available from the chairperson.
