Undergraduate Program


The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers two undergraduate programs of study: a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME), and a Bachelor of Science (BS) with a specialization in Human Factors. The Human Factors program has two parallel tracks: one for students in the School of Engineering and the other for students in the School of Arts and Sciences.

The B.S. in mechanical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Of the thirty-eight course credits required for the professional degrees accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, a minimum of 9.5 course credits must be completed in college level math and basic science subjects appropriate to the discipline and a minimum of 14.5 course credits must be completed in engineering topics, consistent with ABET general and program criteria.

A variety of minor and dual-major programs are also available. The department administers two minors in Engineering Education and Music Engineering. Please visit the School of Engineering's website for a full list of minors available to engineering students.

Read this information carefully before selecting an undergraduate major and when planning a program of study. Planning is particularly important when preparing for meetings with your academic advisor.
