Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering

To graduate with a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering a student must satisfy the following:

  1. Earn a grade of "C" or better in any MENG, EENG or ENGR course.
  2. Earn a grade of "C" or better in any course that is a prerequisite for subsequent courses in the curriculum prior to taking a course that requires the prerequisite.
  3. Complete the general baccalaureate degree requirements of the university.
  4. Complete the ME curriculum requirements specified in the fellow sections.
  5. Pass the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Fundamentals of Engineering examination.

The NCEES Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination is offered twice each year, in April and October, and may be taken more than once. A student should take the examination at least one semester prior to the semester in which the student plans to graduate. Students expecting to complete their course work for an engineering degree in May or August should take the FE exam in October of the preceding year. Those expecting to complete their course work in December should take the exam the preceding April.

Detailed information about the FE exam content, exam schedule, registration for the exam and review sessions is available through the Office of the Dean of Engineering and Computer Science.
