San Diego State University
Mechanical Engineering B.S.

All students in mechanical engineering pursue a common program of basic sciences, engineering, and mechanical engineering fundamentals. In addition, students are provided with the opportunity to select a pattern of study to satisfy their areas of interest through elective courses. Professional electives may be selected from available courses in: energy conversion, such as gas dynamics, heat transfer, solar energy, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics; and elective courses in engineering design, such as material science, machine design, vibrations and systems dynamics, robotics and control, and biomechanics. The student's choice of elective courses must be made in consultation with an advisor and documented by the filing of an approved Master Plan during the second semester of his or her freshman year. Transfer students should consult their department advisor and file a master plan during their first semester as an ME student.
