Admission Guidelines and Requirements

Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing Engineering

Students must be admitted to the University, using their first two years taking courses for the General Education, Mathematics, and Chemistry, and Physics requirements. It is strongly recommended that students meet their MME advisor when planning courses for the first two years. Please use the most recent curriculum when selecting courses. Forms are available from the MME department office.

Students normally apply to the Manufacturing Engineering Major for the second half their sophomore or beginning or their junior year. Students wishing to apply should contact their Manufacturing Engineering adviser to initiate the process. Approval of the application must be given by the major advisor and by the Dean's office. Fill out the worksheet with all classes and their credits whether or not you have finished the class. Please refer to our information sheet about the General Education program for Manufacturing Engineers to find specific requirements. Present the completed worksheet to the major adviser. If you have transfer credits, have an official transcript of those credits sent directly from the transfer school to the major adviser.

To be considered for admission to the Manufacturing Engineering Major, the student must have completed all the required Physics, Mathematics, and Chemistry classes at the 200 level as well as MATH 325, MfgE 101, 102, 220 and ENGR 241 with a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5 or better as well as 2.5 or better in all classes. All attempts at a class in the Manufacturing Engineering core are counted in establishing the GPA. A grade of N from colleges that give that grade to indicate no credit will be counted as a fail. Audited or pass/fail option courses will not be considered for transfer credit unless specifically approved by the responsible SCSU department. Courses with grades less than a C do not transfer for credit to the major.
Enrollment in 300 and 400 level MME classes are limited to those who have been admitted to the major.
