- Engineering students follow a modified General Education requirement that includes a Basic Communication course (ENG170 Writing and Rhetoric or ENG206 Advanced Writing and Rhetoric1 or equivalent), plus one course from each of the following six GE categories:
- United States Studies
- World Civilizations & Cultures
- Western Civilization
- Social Sciences
- The Arts
- Degree requirements include completion of a designated Diversity course.
- A minimum of 125 credits is required to complete the Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering.
- Students may not enroll in any engineering course unless all prerequisites have been met with a grade of C- or better.
- Students are required to earn a grade of C- or better in any Math/Science Foundation, Core Engineering, or Core Mechanical Engineering course and a grade of D- or better in any Advanced Mechanical Engineering course used to satisfy Mechanical Engineering major requirements.

Prerequisite for ENG206 Advanced Writing and Rhetoric: ENG160 Composition I with minimum grade of B or English Placement Level 5.
Seniors must register for EGG408 Senior Design Project I and EGG409 Sr Design Project 2 during each of the last two semesters preceding their graduation. A single project under the direction of a single faculty member will be spread over the two semesters. This project should provide a meaningful engineering design experience and should draw on the student's cumulative technical background.
Professional electives must be chosen from the Division of Engineering Programs' list of approved courses or from its upper-division (300- or 400-level) course offerings. Students must meet all necessary prerequisite coursework and obtain their advisor's approval prior to taking any Professional Elective.
