Manufacturing/Mechanical Engineering

Students with an interest in both areas can pursue a dual BSE program in Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering and thus can earn two BSE degrees at the same time:

  • BSE degree in Manufacturing Engineering
  • BSE degree in Mechanical Engineering

The dual degree program requires specified coursework that equals a minimum of 143 total credits.
