Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Undergraduate Programs

Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (code MAE_BS01) (130 units)

The opportunity to explore a particular area of interest is provided by additional elective courses in the senior year. Several industry and professional society sponsored scholarships and internships are available to upper division mechanical engineering students. Further information is available in the department office.

Degree Progress

Students must complete the following requirements within one calendar year of declaring the major. Some students may need to take courses during Summer Session to meet these requirements. At the end of the year, students who have not met the requirements must either declare another major or meet with an Academic Advisor to determine if the student's performance in the courses merits an additional semester to complete.

First-Time Freshmen: A grade "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 122 within one calendar year.

Transfer Students: A grade "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 123 and PHYS 151 within one calendar year.
