School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering Undergraduate

Overview

In the 21st Century, issues of sustainability, coupled with the rise of emerging technologies, have become a daily aspect of our lives. With everything from 3D printing’s impact on bone fractures to novel, bio-based approaches in making polyurethanes, the impact of mechanical and materials engineering on our society cannot be understated.

By pursuing an undergraduate degree at the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MME), you will learn how to be at the forefront of an exciting field that is constantly evolving.

Bachelor of Science degrees are offered in:

World-Class Faculty

You will receive a world-class education from faculty who are doing groundbreaking research that is pushing the field into new territories. In addition to learning inside the classroom, we encourage student interaction with faculty outside of scheduled class time. By combining experiences inside and outside of the classroom, you will be equipped to work for leading industries or pursue graduate studies in your field.

Policy on student requests for academic exceptions

  1. The School of MME does not generally grant exceptions for curriculum requirements (such as waving pre-requisites, etc.). Starting Fall 2020, the curriculum requirements will also include new benchmarks, as specified in the WSU catalog, to continue in MME majors.
  2. If a student believes that there is an exigent reason to request an exception, a student must first meet with an academic advisor for consultation.
    If the adviser sees a merit for considering an exception, a student will be asked to prepare a letter detailing (i) the rationale for the request, and (ii) a plan to become compliant with the curriculum requirements.
  3. This letter, together with the advisor’s recommendations, will be assessed by the Associate Director for Undergraduate Studies, who may bring up the request to the Undergraduate Studies Committee (UGSC) for additional consideration.
    The decision by the Associate Director for Undergraduate Studies is final.

Note:

Students should not ask faculty members, including the School Director, to grant them exceptions for curriculum requirements. If approached with such requests, faculty members will direct students to the advisors.
