Mechanical Engineering BS/MBA - Program Requirements

(HEGIS: 09.10 MECHANICAL ENGINEERING, CIP: 14.1901 Mechanical Engineering)

Completing the Mechanical Engineering BS/MBA Program

Academic Requirements

Students seeking an undergraduate degree from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences must have a minimum GPA of 2.000 in technical classes (engineering, math, and science classes). To maintain academic standards and determine eligibility for continued enrollment, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences reviews the academic records of all students in an approved undergraduate SEAS major. This academic review is conducted at the end of each fall and spring semester.

Transfer Credit Policy

Transfer students must first apply to the university and meet the university transfer admission requirements. SUNY Seamless Transfer is a SUNY-wide program intended to make transferring to UB and other SUNY Schools simple and efficient. Information about the Transfer Path for this major can be found on the SUNY website. Students are encouraged to contact their academic advisor or department to discuss how their coursework will apply to their degree.

Transfer students who have completed an engineering science program at a community college or the first three years of a 3+2 program at a four-year college can typically expect to enter the third year of an engineering program at the University at Buffalo. Graduates of technology programs receive limited transfer credit and can expect three to four years of study at the university to complete the requirements.

Residency Requirement

Students seeking an undergraduate engineering degree from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences must complete 30 undergraduate credit hours of junior/senior level courses required in their major at the University at Buffalo.

MAE Technical Electives

*Transfer students with Senior standing must replace MAE 277 with an SEAS technical elective**. Transfer students with Junior standing should consult with an MAE academic adviser to determine if they should take MAE 277 or replace it with an SEAS technical elective**.

**Any 300/400 level 3-credit course in MAE that is not a required course qualifies as an MAE technical elective. EAS 496 (3 credits minimum) also satisfies a technical elective requirement.
