A Quick Glance at the Undergraduate Curriculum

Providing students with more flexibility regarding which courses they take is at the heart of the change to the mechanical engineering curriculum. The new Woodruff School curriculum, effective Summer 2012, retains the strengths of the previous program, giving students a broad grounding in the fundamentals as well as experience in professional practice and design. The change in the curriculum lies in the opportunity for students to elect to expand their knowledge beyond mechanical engineering, pursuing interests in multidisciplinary topics, or electing to deeply concentrate in one specialized area of mechanical engineering.
