Your Academic Experience
While a student in the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) degree program, you will study a variety of topics in order to fulfill the 121 credit hour requirement. Throughout your studies, you will partake in courses in three categories: general education (required for all undergraduate students), engineering core, and program core.
What will you learn each year?
In your first three years, you will focus on building a solid academic foundation in mathematics, science, and mechanical core courses. In the fourth year, you will choose an area of your interest to develop your expertise through three advanced elective courses and design projects in the applied subject areas including aerospace engineering, mechanical design, manufacturing and material processing, thermal and fluid engineering, mechatronics and automation, and/or biomedical engineering.
