(Major Code: 09101) (SIMS Code: 447001)
This program requires 120 units to include general education. In addition, the total number of units specified in each elective category represents a minimum requirement.
All students in mechanical engineering pursue a common program of basic sciences, engineering, and mechanical engineering fundamentals. Students are provided with the opportunity to select a pattern of study to satisfy their areas of interest. This pattern of study is indicated in the sequence known as “professional electives” and may be selected from available courses in controls, energy conversion, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, machine design, materials, mechanics, thermodynamics, vibrations, and other areas.
Students must complete all upper division courses in the major within seven years prior to graduation. Students who will have completed any of those courses more than seven years before the projected date of graduation must contact the department chair for information about ways to certify knowledge of current course content.
