Mechanical Concentration Program Outline


This outline applies to students who entered the engineering curriculum during the 2009-10, 2010-11 or 2011-12 academic years. Students who entered before the 2009-10 academic year should not use this outline, but instead select the appropriate outline from the concentration overview page.

Proposed Four Year Program Outline

The following program outline presents a path through the B.S. Engineering curriculum with a mechanical concentration. It is an example of how a student can successfully complete all requirements of the Engineering program within 4 years.

Please note that the program outline presented on this page is a suggestion only. Students with AP credits should adjust their schedules accordingly. In addition, students may be able to swap classes among semesters, study abroad during their first or second years, or complete two concentrations within 8 to 9 semesters.
