Mechanical Engineering, B.S.

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering is a program of study requiring 128-136 credits of undergraduate work, including a two-term senior project capstone requirement completed through oral and written reports and a 400-hour internship. If desired, the candidate may also choose an appropriate sequence of elective courses for a concentration in Manufacturing or Aerospace.

Required coursework can be grouped in four categories: General Education, Major Requirements, Electives or Concentration Requirements, and Additional Requirements.
