The second year curriculum is common to all sub-plans, but prior to or during the second year, students select from the following options (sub-plans) for their third year: General (ME1) allows students to select technical electives from a variety of specialized areas of study; Materials (ME2) includes courses in materials and metallurgical engineering; or Biomechanical (ME3) includes courses in the biomechanical field. Note that with the wide variety of courses offered, the Department cannot guarantee all courses are conflict free or offered each calendar year, particularly for students who choose to transfer or change options in their third or fourth year. Transferring programs could also result in extending the length of the program beyond the typical 4 years.

Students are invited to participate in one of the international design competition teams such as the Autonomous Sailboat Team (MAST), Baja SAE Team, Formula SAE Team, SAE Aero Design Team, ECO Vehicle Design Team, Fuel Cell Design Team or the Solar Design Team.

Options available:

  • Materials Option
  • Biomechanical Option
