Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Major in Manufacturing Engineering (General Manufacturing Concentration)

Minimum required: 126 semester credit hours

General Requirements

  1. The general education core curriculum courses are listed in the degree plan below along with the statewide component code number. See the General Education Core Curriculum section of this catalog for the Texas State requirements and options in the core curriculum, including Honors courses.
  2. Students must complete a minimum of 36 advanced hours (3000 or 4000 level courses).
  3. Students entering Texas State with fewer than 16 credit hours completed after high school graduation will be required to take US 1100. All others will be exempt from taking this course.
  4. Nine semester credit hours must be writing intensive (WI).
  5. If two years of the same language are taken in high school, then no additional language hours will be required for the degree. In the absence of such high school language, two semesters of the same modern language must be taken at the college level.
  6. The Manufacturing Engineering degree programs include all the courses required for an Applied Mathematics minor.
