Students can complete requirements for both Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in one degree with the MAE Double Major.
How it works
Students can complete requirements for both the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering majors in 4.5 years due to the large overlap in course requirements for each degree. Students pursuing a double major in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering should complete all required courses for the Aerospace Engineering degree, except for the SEAS technical elective, which must be replaced by a professional practice track course. In addition, students need to complete four additional courses to satisfy the remaining Mechanical Engineering degree requirements:
All academic requirements are outlined in the Undergraduate Catalog, including course and elective listings.
Note: The edition of the catalog that contains students’ university and major requirements is determined by their academic year of entry or reentry and academic year of acceptance to the major.
The dual major does not have a flowsheet as it requires flexibility and modifications. Students should use the flowsheets and catalog pages for both majors to determine their own path to graduation. Students should keep in mind course pre-requisites as well as a personal evaluation regarding time commitment when determining semester course loads.
The Professional Practice elective has a series of courses drawn from different departments across the university and stresses disciplines such as professional communication, economics and business, the environment, and similar. For a list of courses, visit the Catalog.
All UB students must take a specified number of general education courses. Several sets of requirements are potentially applicable depending on when (year) and how (transfer or freshman) a student entered UB. For more information contact the SEAS Office of Undergraduate Education.
