The requirements for the degree comprise four major segments: foundation courses in mathematics and physical sciences; basic engineering courses; general education courses in the arts, humanities, social sciences, biological sciences and other related areas; and a sequence of courses to fulfill the requirements of the Mechanical Engineering degree or the emphasis in Manufacturing Engineering.
Students are required to meet with their academic adviser every semester during the first year and at least once a year thereafter. Students are strongly encouraged to see their academic advisers frequently to obtain guidance in pursuit of their careers. All courses taken in fulfillment of the requirements for the bachelor’s degree must be taken for a letter grade, i.e., under grade Option 1. All mathematics and physical science courses required for the degree must be completed with at least a “C” (2.0) to count as prerequisite courses to engineering courses or as credit towards the degree. Graduate courses are not open to undergraduate students without approval of the program coordinator.
