Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering
Students planning to enter the Mechanical Engineering curriculum should undertake mathematics-science training in high school. Such courses as algebra, trigonometry, calculus, physics, chemistry, drafting, English, writing, speech, and shop classes will prove beneficial.
Cooperative Field Experience
There is an opportunity for students in the bachelor of science degree program to work in industry for a specified time and receive college credit. Those interested in such an opportunity are encouraged to work out the details with the Mechanical Engineering Program Director.
In the curriculum listings appear several courses titled "MECH elective." MECH electives allow the student to select and pursue specific career objectives within the mechanical engineering field. MECH electives are upper-division MECH courses, not specifically required for graduation. Students from other institutions should refer to the sections of this catalog titled "Transfer Students" and "Admission to Baccalaureate programs."
