Undergraduate Programs

Note: some courses that satisfy degree and concentration requirements may be available online. For most up-to-date information regarding online course offerings, visit


B.S. Mechanical Engineering

The bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering offers a curriculum that combines classroom learning with engineering practice. A broad spectrum of coursework is available for learning the fundamentals of engineering science, analysis, and design. State-of-the-art labs provide unmatched, hands-on experience to students through design and research projects.

129 credits. 

B.S. Biomedical Engineering + Mechanical Engineering
(Dual Bachelor of Science)

The dual bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering draws students interested in applying mechanical engineering principles to biological systems. Students analyze and design devices such as exercise equipment, prosthetic limbs, and exoskeletons that work outside the body to enhance functionality of the body externally; or work with orthopaedic implants or biocompatible materials that work inside the body to enhance or replace bone or soft tissues.

157 credits.


Students can earn an undergraduate concentration in aerospace engineering or advanced manufacturing when they complete 12 credit hours (four technical electives) of approved coursework. Credits count toward the 129-credit degree requirement, assuming other technical electives aren’t already completed. 

Aerospace Engineering

Advanced Manufacturing


Accelerated Master’s Program (AMP) B.S. – M.S.

Students with strong scholarly and/or research interests may apply for admission to a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree program to begin their graduate program during their senior year of undergraduate study. Advisors will help students identify which technical electives will count toward both of their degrees.

Up to nine credits of 500-level courses may be double-counted for the B.S. and M.S. programs. 

B.S. Mechanical Engineering + Organizational Leadership Certificate

Students with strong interest in business may obtain a graduate certificate in organizational leadership from the College of Business at minimal cost.  Students who complete this will be guaranteed admission to the CSU master’s in business administration program and will receive a 10% discount on remaining MBA tuition as fees as an alumnus.

Nine credits of 500 or 600 courses will count toward both the certificate and the MBA degree.  Advisors in the College of Business will help students identify which courses will count toward both the graduate certificate and the MBA.
