(SIMS Code: 447012)

Students must complete 150 units to be simultaneously awarded the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering and the M.S. degree in mechanical engineering. Students can apply for admission to the BS/MS 4+1 (B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering) degree program when they have successfully completed a minimum of 82 units and not more than 97 units. These units must count towards one or the other of the two SDSU degree programs (B.S. or M.S.) that will ultimately be awarded in the dual degree program. All students must have a satisfactory score [minimum of 308 for combined verbal and quantitative on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test] and a minimum overall GPA of 3.0.

To satisfy the requirements for the BS/MS 4+1 degree program (B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering), students must achieve at least a 3.0 average in the 30 units of courses used to satisfy the graduate program of study. Of the 30 units, a maximum of nine units may be in 500-numbered mechanical engineering electives and all other program requirements must be satisfied. Three 500-level courses may be used to fulfill the elective requirements for the 4+1 BS/MS degree program (B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering) at the same time as serving as prerequisite courses for graduate study. The BS/MS 4+1 degree program (B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering) allows students to use any three 500-level M E courses toward their graduate degree. Students in the BS/MS 4+1 degree program (B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering) must follow the thesis option. Upon successful completion of the BS/MS 4+1 degree program, students will receive the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering and M.S. degree in mechanical engineering.
