Leveling (Make-up) Courses for Holders of Non-ME BS Degrees in other Engineering, Physical Sciences, Computer Science, or Mathematics
Applications from individuals with a B.S. degree in other Engineering disciplines, Math, Computer Science, and Physical Sciences (such as Physics or Chemistry) are considered. To qualify for a graduate degree, applicants are expected to have at least an undergraduate-level exposure to most of the core ME disciplines.
The ME Department does not offer "provisional," "probationary," or "conditional" admissions. For this reason, applicants who do not hold a BSME or closely related degree should complete most of the leveling courses before formally applying for the degree program. This may be accomplished while in the undergraduate or non-degree status. The ME Graduate Director should be consulted to design a course plan. Once the individual has completed most of the leveling coursework, he/she may be considered for regular admission to an ME graduate degree program.
CS 151 Computer Programming Fundamentals (or equivalent)
CE 202 Statics
Math 316 Applied Ordinary Differential Equations
ME 301 Thermodynamics (Classical Thermodynamics taught by Physics Dept. is not an acceptable substitute.)
ME 306 Dynamics (Classical Mechanics taught by Physics Dept. is not an acceptable substitute.)
CE 302 Mechanics of Materials
ME 317 Fluid Mechanics (May be waived for students who do not intend to pursue Energy/Thermo-Fluid areas upon approval of the student's advisor.)
ME 320 Heat Transfer (May be waived for students who do not intend to pursue Energy/Thermo-Fluid areas upon approval of the student's advisor.)
ME 357 Vibrations (This subject is helpful if the student intends to take ME 516 or ME 580 as a Core graduate course.)
ME 370 Engineering Material Science (May be waived for students who do not intend to pursue Materials and Solid Mechanics areas upon approval of the student's advisor.)
ME 380 Controls (This subject will be required if the student intends to take ME 580 or ME 581 as a Core graduate course.)
- Your academic advisor (or Committee-on-Studies) may require additional leveling courses.
- Course descriptions and pre-requisites are available in the UNM Catalog.
- A grade of at least "B" will normally be required in the make-up courses.
- None of the above-listed courses (except for Math 316) may be applied towards the ME graduate degree.
