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

Minimum required: 129 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. Majors must complete a minimum of 36 advanced hours (3000 or 4000 level courses).
