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:
- All Basic Skills requirements
- All 100 level Foundation courses
- 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:
- All Foundation courses
- All Engineering Core courses
- 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.
