All mechanical engineering students are required to have at least six credits of work in the mathematical sciences and sciences beyond those courses specifically required in the program. The course credits can be met at any course level. Those at the 2000 level and above can be used to meet the professional requirements
of the program. Restrictions on courses are noted in the following:
- All MATH 2000-level and above courses except MATH 2720W and 2794W;
- All STAT courses except STAT 1000Q;
- All BIOL, EEB, MCB, and PNB courses;
- All CHEM courses except CHEM 1101;
- All GSCI courses, all MARN courses.
Concentration requirements: Nine credits (three courses, 2000 level and above); no course grades of less than C; plan of study for concentration; must take courses from subset of identified courses.
Three courses from: ME 3239, 3251, 3275, 3280, 5311*, 6160*, or ME 3295 (Special Topics) taught as any of the following: Acoustics, Aerospace Control Systems, Computer Aided Engineering, or Propulsion.
