Advising Manufacturing Engineering

As with all programs in the Engineering & Design Department, it is strongly recommended that new students seek early advising with our department Pre-Major Advisor. Students must initially declare as a pre-major in order to register for courses in the Engineering & Design department. Students interested in pursuing the Manufacturing program must complete a set of prerequisite coursework (below) as a pre-major before they can apply for acceptance as a full major in the program. Students should meet with the Advisor for course advising as a pre-major.

For major application requirements and due dates see Admissions section.
