Degree Requirements

Note: The 2007-2008 printed WSU catalogue for MfgE degree requirements has some errors. Please refer to this page for program information.

The BS in Manufacturing Engineering program requires the completion of 128 semester hours for graduation, minus hours commensurate with advanced placement. Students may select 6 hours of technical electives to emphasize their study of advanced manufacturing engineering concepts and related topics in other engineering disciplines. Selection of appropriate courses would allow the students to tailor their study to fit their individual interests and needs. Students' programs of study are determined in consultation with their faculty advisors. Specific requirements and a suggested schedule for the manufacturing engineering program are given in the accompanying table.
