Program Requirements

The mechanical engineering undergraduate program is designed to provide a broad background in all areas of mechanical engineering while allowing flexibility for students to choose electives from within the Mechanical Engineering Department as well as other departments. The following conditions must be satisfied for the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering:

  • Completion of the Mechanical Engineering Core Curriculum. It is strongly recommended that one core-curriculum course, ENME E3105, be taken in the sophomore year.
  • Completion of 27 points of nontechnical electives during undergraduate study.
  • Completion of 21 points of elective content in the third and fourth years, at least 12 points of technical courses, including 6 points from the Department of Mechanical Engineering (courses with "ME" in their designations: MECE, MEBM, EEME, and IEME). Students who take APMA E2101 must additionally purpose 3 points of their 12 points of technical elective requirement toward a course with the following course designators: MATH, PHYS, CHEM, BIOL, STAT, APMA, SIEO, or EEEB. Remaining points of electives are intended primarily as an opportunity to complete the four-year, 27-point nontechnical requirement. Consistent with professional accreditation standards, courses in engineering science and courses in design must have a combined credit of 48 points. Students should see their advisers for details.

Note:A maximum of up to 6 points of ME E3900 and/or ME E3901 and/or ME E3998 can be counted toward the 12-point technical elective requirement.

  • Courses in engineering science and courses in engineering design must have a combined credit of 48 points. Completion of the core curriculum in mechanical engineering leads to satisfying 44.5 out of these 48 points. The technical elective requirement allows you to satisfy the remaining 3.5 points.

    Highly qualified students are permitted to pursue an honors course consisting of independent study under the guidance of a member of the faculty.

  • First- and second-year students are required to take the Botwinick Gateway Laboratory course in computerization and technology, E1102. In addition, at least one professional-level course is required.
  • First and second-year students must also complete math, physics, chemistry, computer-science and physical-education requirements.
