Program Description and Degree Requirements: Mechanical Engineering

oregon state school of mechanical, industrial and manufacturing engineering The mechanical engineering undergraduate degree program at Oregon State has two components: the pre-engineering program and ME professional school.

ME Pre-Engineering

The ME pre-engineering program comprises your first two years of program coursework and lays the foundation for being a successful engineer and for doing well in the ME professional program. Along with an introductory mechanical engineering course, you'll take courses in basic engineering science, math and statistics, chemistry and physics, and oral and written communication. This portion of the ME program is open to any undergraduate admitted to OSU.

ME Professional School

The pro-school component of your OSU ME education encompasses your junior and senior years and focuses on strengthening and extending your discipline-specific knowledge and experience. Core coursework in ME pro school includes fluid science, thermodynamics, materials, dynamics, and design.

In contrast to the pre-engineering program, entrance into ME pro school is selective: You must apply and be accepted after successfully completing your pre-engineering coursework. Admission into the Mechanical Engineering Professional Program at OSU is highly competitive.
