Dual Degree – BS/MEng in ME

In addition to the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree programs, a combined BS/MEng degree program is also available for exemplary mechanical engineering students. The program offer outstanding students an opportunity to earn both a bachelor's and a master's degree within approximately five years of entry to the BS program. The BS/MEng program has a strong career-oriented focus, and is primarily directed towards students not considering continued graduate study at the doctoral level. The master of engineering degree is primarily a terminal master's program that prepares graduates for leadership positions in industry.

The BS/MEng program is a tightly coupled Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering degree program. All students in the BS/MEng program are required to complete three courses: Math 1,  System Modeling, and Computer Implementation of FEM.  BS/MEng Students must complete 0304-730 Design Project Management as one of their Graduate Electives, and take on a leadership position in their undergraduate multi-disciplinary senior design project team.

Students must select four concentration courses from one of numerous concentration areas listed under the Master of Engineering Program. Possible concentrations include thermo-fluids, controls, design, manufacturing, business, and customized program of study. The concentration may be significantly interdisciplinary. By design, a student's program may range over several colleges of the Institute in assembling courses which will best help him or her meet his or her professional objectives. At least 32 credit hours of course work must be taken in the mechanical engineering department, and begin with a course number of MECE-6xx. At least 36 credit hours of course work must be taken at the graduate level, and begin with a course number of nnnn-7xx or higher. Students may take no more than 12 credits hours of 0304-6xx courses. For example, if a student selects 0304-643 Control Systems as one of their Concentration Classes, then Graduate or Technical Elective 3 must be MECE-600 or higher. A minimum of 48 credits are required for the master of engineering degree.
