Engineering builds on a strong traditional mathematics, science, and engineering core. The Mechanical Engineering emphasis focuses on mechanical design and the electromechanical elements of smart machines.
The mathematics courses listed as cognates for the Engineering degree satisfy the requirements for a minor in mathematics. A second major in mathematics requires 6 additional credits in mathematics, and a second major in physics requires 14–17 additional credits in physics. See the Mathematics and Physics department listings for details.
Major: Core Requirements - 30

Chosen from ENGR courses in consultation with an advisor.
Andrews Core Experience
Students must fullful the Andrews Core Experience requirements for Professional Degrees and note the following specific requirements.
Maintaining Academic Standing
No grade lower than C- may be counted toward any degree requirement. An Engineering or Computing course may be repeated only once. Students may repeat only two Engineering or Computing courses. Students will be asked to withdraw from the program if they fail two Engineering or Computing courses in the same semester. Readmission will be considered on an individual basis. All prerequisites for ENGR courses must be passed with a minimum grade of C- before entry into the class it is required for. Transfer credits need to be submitted a minimum of six weeks prior to beginning of classes. Transfer students will be considered on an individual basis.
