Courses to total 128 credits for this degree, not counting ENGL 101 , MATH 143 , and other courses that might be required to remove deficiencies.

To advance to upper-division courses, a student majoring in mechanical engineering must earn certification: the student may accumulate no more than three grades of D or F in the mathematics, science or engineering courses used to satisfy certification requirements. Included in this number are courses transferred from other institutions, multiple repeats of a single course, and single repeats in multiple courses.

In addition, students must also earn at least five grades of 'B' or better in these mathematics, science or engineering courses:

CHEM 111Principles of Chemistry I3
COMM 101Fundamentals of Public Speaking2
ENGL 102College Writing and Rhetoric3
ENGR 210Engineering Statics3
ENGR 220Engineering Dynamics3
ENGR 240Introduction to Electrical Circuits3
ENGR 350Engineering Mechanics of Materials3
MATH 170Analytic Geometry and Calculus I4
MATH 175Analytic Geometry and Calculus II4
MATH 275Analytic Geometry and Calculus III3
MATH 310Ordinary Differential Equations3
ME 123Introduction to Mechanical Design3
ME 223Mechanical Design Analysis3
ME 301Computer Aided Design Methods3
MSE 201Elements of Materials Science3
PHYS 211Engineering Physics I3
PHYS 212Engineering Physics II3

A grade of P (pass) in any of these courses is considered as a C grade in satisfying this certification requirement.

To graduate in this program, a student may accumulate no more than five grades of D or F in the mathematics, science, or engineering courses used to satisfy graduation requirements. Included in this number are multiple repeats of a single course or single repeats in multiple courses and courses transferred from other institutions.
