Advising Guidebook: Introduction
The purpose of this guide is to assist undergraduate students in the Mechanical Engineering (M.E.) Department in fulfilling the M.E. curriculum requirements for the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. These requirements are structured to comply with College rules and to maintain our accreditation in compliance with the rules of the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
These M.E. Bachelor of Science degree program rules and requirements are subject to annual revision and changes. These program rules apply to all undergraduates enrolled in the program during academic year 2009-2010, regardless of the date when they first enrolled in the program. However, no student can be denied credit for any courses that were previously required or allowed in the program, provided that those courses were taken after the student had been admitted to the M.E. program and the student has been continuously enrolled.
The curriculum is by nature dynamic, and consequently undergoes both major and minor changes. As an undergraduate student, you will generally be expected to follow the curriculum in effect when you entered as a freshman. You should keep a copy of the university catalog and all written information including the version of the Advising Guide that was in effect when you entered the Mechanical Engineering program. Copies of the curriculum, a course checklist and a graphical flow chart are contained in this document (the booklet you are reading now).
The student is responsible for adherence to the M.E. curriculum rules and requirements and should be aware that deviation from the planned sequence of courses may result in delayed graduation.
