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 with an average grade C or above. A B.S. in Physics under this program will be awarded at the same time as or after 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.
Students in this dual degree program are not required to fulfill the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences foreign language requirement (see the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences section of this Catalog for additional information).
