BSME Major Requirements

The BSME major is a broad degree, striving to cultivate in students a technical mastery, awareness and understanding of diverse and global contexts, and the capacity to apply engineering know-how in sustainable, ethical, and socially responsible ways.

A total of 180‐quarter credits are required to complete the BSME program. All major requirements and prerequisite courses must be completed with a minimum of a 2.0 GPA. Regardless of the number of mechanical engineering courses taken at another institution, at least 45 of the last 60 credits must be taken in residence at UW Bothell.

Prerequisites may be met through coursework at UW Bothell, another four‐year institution, or a community college and must be completed before the application deadline. The Mechanical Engineering major is competitive and completion of the prerequisite courses does not guarantee admission.
