Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Major in Mechanical Engineering

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. No minor is required in this Bachelor of Science degree program because of the breadth of the foundation and support coursework.
  4. Nine semester credit hours must be writing intensive (WI).
  5. If two years of the same, non-English 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.
