Admission to the ME Major program is based on various academic criteria including performance in a set of designated CORE courses, number of repeated CORE courses, as well as professional and ethical behavior.
Students seeking a Mechanical Engineering degree who are admitted to BSU in academic year 2014-2015 or later enter under the Pre-Mechanical Engineering academic plan. Pre-ME students are able to enroll in the courses that make up the ME curriculum for the first five semesters of their academic career, but must be admitted into the ME major prior to enrolling in select upper-division ME courses. The admission criteria are based on GPA in ME CORE courses, the number of repeated ME CORE courses, and evidence of professional and ethical behavior.
Students accepted into the ME Major are expected to maintain a high level of professional and ethical behavior throughout their academic careers; failure to do so may result in expulsion from the program.
