Undergraduate Curriculum & Advising

Advising Handbook Course Descriptions

The undergraduate curriculum in Mechanical Engineering consists of a series of core courses, combined with electives in both technical fields and the humanities and social sciences. Students who would like to specialize their degree have the option of completing an emphasis in Biomedical or Environmental Engineering

In addition to the curricular requirements, students are also required to sit for the FE Exam, complete the Buffs Professional Program, and submit their responses to the Senior Survey. For more information on policies, FAQs and academic requirements/advising, see our Undergraduate Advising Handbook.
