5-Year Bachelor-Master Program in Mechanical Engineering (BME-MME)

5-Year Bachelor-Master Program in Mechanical Engineering (BME-MME)

Description

The College of Engineering & Science offers a combined Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering/Master of Mechanical Engineering program.

In order to complete both the BME and MME degrees in five years, the student must (a) be very well prepared as an incoming freshman; (b) satisfy all the admission criteria (see below) at the end of the junior year, and (c) maintain a 3.25 GPA, in order to take graduate level courses while still an undergraduate.

    Admission Into the Program

    Qualifications for the 5-year Engineering program for incoming freshmen:

    • A minimum ACT composite score of 26, with a minimum of 22 in each section, and a minimum of 23 in the Mathematics section.  Or minimum SAT scores: 560 Mathematics, 560 ERW, and 1230 combined.
    • With ACT/SAT scores above: a high school grade point average of 3.4 overall on a 4.0 point scale, and the same for the combined mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology courses.
    • Without ACT/SAT scores: a high school grade point average of 3.6 overall on a 4.0 point scale, and the same for the combined mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology courses.
    • Students must place into appropriate-level freshmen courses at Detroit Mercy in order to be able to complete both the bachelor and master degrees in five years.

    Qualifications for the 5-year Engineering program for current Detroit Mercy juniors:

    • Students with a GPA of 3.25 and 95 credit hours may apply for the program in their third year.
    • Students must be on-track to complete their undergraduate degree in four years.  (Some exceptions may apply.)

    Additional Information:

    If accepted into the program, students may take up to nine graduate credits in their third/fourth years that will count towards both undergraduate and graduate requirements.

    While registered as an undergraduate, students should register for the 5000-level section of Computer Aided Engineering (MENG 5920) or Controls (ENGR 5220).

    All 5-year students should take Capstone Design (MENG 5980). Note that the research component of MENG 5980 should be negotiated with an M.E. faculty as early as possible during the undergraduate years.

    In their fifth year, students will be registered as full-time graduate students, which requires that they are registered for at least nine credit hours of graduate-level courses per term. These courses will be charged at the graduate tuition rate.

    To remain in the program, undergraduate students must maintain a 3.25 GPA at Detroit Mercy and be progressing steadily toward graduation.

    Degree Requirements (BME 139 credits + MME 30 credits, nine credits double-counted)

    The course requirements for the 5-Year Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering to Master of Mechanical Engineering include 139 credits of undergraduate course work and 30 credits of graduate coursework. Nine credits taken at the graduate-level may be double-counted towards the undergraduate degree, so that the total credits completed could be 160 credits. The course requirements are based on the current existing requirements for each program separately. Please review separate catalog pages for Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and Master of Mechanical Engineering for degree requirements.
