Mechanical Engineering Classes

A total of 122 semester hours are required for graduation.

Program Requirements

Students of good character who fulfill the following minimum requirements, in addition to those listed in the chapter on Academic Regulations, will be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) degree:

  • Earning the total semester hours required for the individual curriculum
  • Earning a “C-” or better in every course in the major and with a cumulative average of 2.0 in the major courses. Each department designates the courses to be included in the major and decides the procedure necessary to remove each deficiency, including any “D” in a major course. When a course is a prerequisite to another, a “C-” or better in the prerequisite course may also be a requirement

A total of 122 semester hours are required for graduation, of which 61 will be fulfilled within the program core.

Transfer Policy

All undergraduate ABET accredited programs students must complete all Engineering major coursework, Engineering and Technical Electives, and STEM coursework at the 300+ level; and Junior/Senior level (as per the program requirements) at University of Bridgeport.

Students are able to transfer classes, if approved by the chair and dean, outside the University at lower (100-200) levels or Freshman/Sophomore level (as per the program requirements) only at the time of transferring into the program; and based on UB's transfer policy as it pertains to evaluation of course descriptions, syllabi and examples of work done in transferred-in classes.

Course Substitution Policy

All undergraduate ABET accredited programs students must complete all Engineering major coursework, Engineering and Technical Electives, and STEM coursework at the 300+ level; and Junior/Senior level (as per the program requirements) at University of Bridgeport; and as per defined in the program requirements. There will be NO course substitutions allowed for these classes as defined in the program requirements.

Substitution courses may be allowed at lower (100-200) levels or Freshman/Sophomore level (as per the program requirements) with the approval of the Department Chair and School Dean.
