Curriculum - Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering requires the completion of 128 credit hours. The BSME's unique and blended format allows students to experience the same lectures and discussions as traditional campus students, through online and video courses.

Coursework is completed primarily online with the exception of three lab courses that require an occasional face-to-face component. Students can complete these labs during the weekend across the state of Alabama in Gadsden or Tuscaloosa.
