To obtain a dual B.S. degree in both Physics and Mechanical Engineering, undergraduate students must complete all requirements for the B.S.M.E. degree as established by the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science. In addition, students must complete 12 credit hours of upper-division PHYS courses specified by the Department of Physics and Optical Science. A B.S. in Physics under this program will be awarded at the same time as the B.S.M.E. The B.S. in Physics degree will not be awarded in advance of the B.S. in Mechanical Engineering degree.
General Education Courses (21 credit hours)
For details on required courses, refer to the General Education program. Students in this major should plan on taking the following courses that meet general education and major requirements.
Students must have a 2.0 or above GPA in PHYS courses in order to graduate. A grade of C or above is required in most PHYS courses before students can progress to the next PHYS course. Students must also have a 2.0 overall GPA in engineering courses.
