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:

  • Participation in such departmental seminars as the faculty prescribes
  • 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 57 will be fulfilled within the program core.
