This major is built to facilitate the transferral of courses to Eastern Michigan University, from all 28 community colleges in Michigan. Faculty from across the state identified courses a student may take in the first and second year of the bachelor’s degree programs at all participating universities.
The MiTransfer Pathways courses in Mechanical Engineering are:
*Minimum 4 credits, linear algebra must be covered
Faculty also identified Remaining Degree Requirements, which include courses that students can transfer from the community college. These courses are noted below.
Unless otherwise noted, only courses deemed equivalent by EMU faculty may satisfy major requirements. For a list of applicable courses, see “Approved Courses” links or Transfer Equivalencies. Please see “Critical Graduation Information” below for additional policies governing transfer credit.
The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (ME) program at Eastern Michigan University is dedicated to preparing students for productive careers in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis on design and materials.
This is a designated STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) program.
Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Students will take courses that involve engineering materials, solid mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and manufacturing processes to evaluate and synthesize mechanical and thermal systems. Laboratory experiments and the use of computer aided engineering tools will be integrated into the program. Students will also study engineering design theories and will acquire numerous engineering design experiences.
The mechanical engineering curriculum will culminate with a capstone design project experience. The capstone design project experience will require students to draw from their previously acquired knowledge in mathematics and the engineering sciences to solve engineering design problems supplied by external customers. Students that complete EMU’s Mechanical Engineering program will be prepared to help solve tomorrow’s engineering problems.
