The BSME program is a 2+2 program. The first two years, students take the lower-division coursework required for admission to the upper-division BSME program. If admitted, students will complete the necessary upper-division coursework during their last two years.
Once students have applied and have been admitted into the upper-division program, they will be assigned a specific course plan that they will follow to finish their degree.
