Mechanical Engineering Catalog Changes

These catalog changes apply to ME majors only.

  • Students following the 2015-17 and 2017-19 catalogs, with a concentration in Mechanatronics, can substitute ME 506 (4) or ME 507 (4) for ME 423 (4).  A petition is not required.
  • Students following the 2011-13 through 2015-17 catalogs can substitute ME 428 (2) + ME 429 (2) + ME 430 (2) for ME 428 (3) + 429 (2) + 430 (1).  A petition is not required.  This applies to the General, Mechatronics, and Manufacturing concentrations.
  • Students following the 2013-15 through 2017-19 catalogs can substitute ENGR 459 + ENGR 460 + ENGR 461 (6 total units) for ME 428 + 429 + 430 (6 total units).  A petition is not required.  This applies to the General, Mechatronics, and Manufacturing concentrations.
  • Students following the 2005-07 through 2017-19 catalogs can substitute BIO 111 (4 units) for BIO 213 (2 units) + ENGR 213 (2 units).  A petition is not required.
  • Students following the 2009-11 through 2013-15 catalogs can substitute ME 420 (4 units) for ME 440 (4 units).  A petition is not required.
  • Transfer students and change of major students following the 13-15 and 15-17 catalogs can substitute CPE 101 (or transfer equivalent) for CSC 231/234.  A petition is not required.
  • Students following the 2009-11 through 2013-15 catalogs my take CE 207 (2 units) for CE 207 (3 units) and department will waitve the third unit, which reduces total units to degree by one unit.
  • Transfer students following the 2001-03 through 2017-19 catalogs may substitute 3 1/2 excess units from a CHEM 124 equivalent course + 1/2 excess unit from a PHYS 131 or 141 or 132 or 133 equivalent course for CHEM 125 (4). A petition is not required.
  • Students following the 2013-15 and 2015-17 catalogs may substitue one of the following sequences for ME 128 (1) + ME 129 (1) + ME 130 (1) + ME 163 (1) + ME 251 (2) = 6 units (a petition is not required):
          ME 134 (1) + ME 151 (2) + ME 152 (2) + ME 251 (1) = 6 units
          ME 134 (1) + ME 151 (2) + ME 152 (2) + ME 271 (1) = 6 units
  • Students following the 2009-11 through 2011-13 catalogs may substitute one of the following sequences for ME 134 (1) + ME 151 (2) + ME 152 (2) + ME 251 (1) = 6 units (a petition is not required):
