Electives

The Mechanical Engineering curriculum includes 9 credit hours of technical electives to specialize in a technical area of special interest. Elective courses are available in aerospace engineering, mechanical design, manufacturing and materials processing, thermal fluid systems, mechatronics and automation, and biomechanical. Learn more about each specific field and the kinds of courses available.


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.
