Undergraduate Academic Programs
The Bachelor of Science degree program in Mechanical Engineering draws on faculty expertise in areas of controls and robotics; processes; thermal sciences; automation; machine design; computer-aided design; material science; and optics and lasers. The Bachelor of Science degree program in Manufacturing Engineering draws on faculty expertise in areas of controls and robotics; production management; processes; automation; quality engineering; computer-aided design; and lean manufacturing.
The majors include course work in mathematics, basic science, computer science, engineering, and mechanical and electronic design. The study of humanities and social science helps the student understand the effects of emerging technologies on society. The mechanical engineering program prepares the student for an engineering career in product or process design, research and development, or project engineering in an industrial setting. The program is also suitable as preparation for graduate study in mechanical engineering, engineering management, and related fields. The manufacturing engineering program prepares the student for an engineering career in process design, production, facilities layout, tool design, or project engineering in a manufacturing environment. The program is also suitable as preparation for graduate study in manufacturing engineering, mechanical engineering, and other related fields.
Students entering these programs should have a strong aptitude in mathematics and science. They will be expected to have had course work in physics, chemistry and mathematics through advanced algebra and trigonometry in high school. Remedial courses are available for students without this preparation, but credits in remedial courses will not count toward completion of the major.
The Bachelor of Science programs in Manufacturing Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at SCSU are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 - telephone (410) 347-7700.

MME Double Major Policy
Students wishing to double major in both Mechanical Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering must satisfy all the requirements of the declared major plus complete the core courses required in the desired second major discipline (14 credits) while maintaining the balance of both major requirements. Only one senior design experience and a total of four technical elective courses (one free and three area) are required for the double major. One BS degree will be awarded and both the mechanical engineering and manufacturing engineering majors will be listed on the transcript. Completion of the double major satisfied all legal and professional requirements for practice, including licensure, for both fields even though only one BS degree is issued.
1) Additional courses for BS MfgE students to double major in ME are the remaining core courses required in the second (ME) major (14 Cr.):
MME 300 (3 cr.), MME 345 (3 cr.), MME 302 (3 cr.), MME 401 (2 cr.), and a third MME 4XX (3 cr.) area technical elective
2) Additional courses for BS ME students to double major in MfgE are the remaining core courses required in the second (MfgE) major (14
MME 330 or 331 (3 cr.), MME 332 (2 cr.), MME 460 (3 cr.), MME 464 (3 cr.), and MME 470 (3 cr.)
