Interdisciplinary major; no minor required. The BSME program requires admission to the program as follows:
Admission to the Mechanical Engineering Program
Students admitted to SVSU may declare a Pre-Mechanical Engineering major. Admission to the Mechanical Engineering program requires a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher in the following courses:
- ME 101 Engineering Careers and Concepts
- CHEM 111 General Chemistry I Lecture
- CHEM 111L General Chemistry I Lab
- MATH 161 Calculus I
- ME 202 Engineering Data Analysis
Grades of a C (2.00) or higher must be achieved in each of the above courses; AP scores of three or higher satisfy this requirement. Students may then declare a Mechanical Engineering major and continue in the program.
Transfers of the equivalent of these above five courses from other institutions must meet the same cumulative and individual course GPA requirements listed above. Students with two or more course repeats (i. e., three or more total attempts) of any of the above five courses without achieving the minimum grade (C) are ineligible for admission to the Mechanical Engineering program. This course repeat requirement includes transfers of the above five courses.
Mechanical Engineering Program Course Repeat Policy
Each Mechanical Engineering course can only be repeated twice, three attempts in total. Students who do not pass the course with a grade of C (2. 00) or higher upon their second repeat (third attempt) will be dismissed from the Mechanical Engineering program. Students who are dropped from the program may petition for reinstatement by submitting a Reinstatement Form to the Mechanical Engineering Department with a written reinstatement rationale within the first two weeks of the academic term prior to the term being requested for reinstatement.
