Minimum required to apply for admission to the Mechanical Engineering Program
You must apply for admission to this program. The application is due during the first week of the quarter prior to the quarter you’d like to begin the program. Admission is based on your GPA in the core courses below, which must be completed no later than the quarter you’re applying. The application can be obtained by emailing MechEngineering@ewu.edu.
In order to ensure all EWU Mechanical Engineering graduates meet EWU ABET accreditation requirements, all mechanical engineering students are required to take , , , , , and / from EWU. Exceptions to this policy will be reviewed on a case by case basis by the mechanical engineering curriculum review committee to ensure you have successfully met the EWU ABET performance indicators required for each course.
The first two years of the curriculum allow students to establish a solid foundation in mathematics, sciences and introduces foundation subjects in mechanical engineering. The third- and fourth-year curriculum explores further areas in mechanical engineering and a capstone is introduced in the fourth year. The senior year capstone course allows you to consolidate your education experience. The primary objective of the Mechanical Engineering Program is to prepare you to enter and progress in mechanical engineering positions in business, industry and government. Graduates are generally expected to work in the research and development of ideas, products and processes by applying engineering principles to the solution of practical problems in the mechanical engineering field.
