If B or higher is not earned in ENGL 1113 Composition I or ENGL 1313 Critical Analysis and Writing I, ENGL 1213 Composition II or ENGL 1413 Critical Analysis and Writing II is also required (per Academic Regulation 3.5).
MET 1223 also permitted.
MET 1213 or GENT 1223 also permitted.
GENT 1153 also permitted.
GENT 3433 is also permitted.
MET 4433 or GENT 4433 is also permitted.
MATH 1513 can be taken here if a student needs to take MATH 1513 as a prerequisite for MATH 1813.
- A minimum average Technical GPA of 2.00 is required. The technical GPA is calculated from all courses counting in the curriculum with a prefix belonging to the degree program, or substitutions for these courses.
- A grade of 'C' or better is required in all courses with an analytical or natural science designation or engineering or engineering technology prefix.
- Students will be held responsible for degree requirements in effect at the time of matriculation and any changes that are made so long as the changes do not delay graduation or result in semester hours being added.
- The minimum requirements for the Mechanical Engineering Technology degree is 121. In cases where two courses can meet a requirement and they have differing credit hours, the lower credit hour course is typically recommended. The alternatives are largely listed to facilitate transfer into the MET degree from other programs.
Additional State/OSU Requirements
- At least: 60 hours at a four-year institution; 30 hours completed at OSU; 15 of the final 30 or 50% of the upper-division hours in the major field completed at OSU.
- Limit of: one-half of major course requirements as transfer work; one-fourth of hours earned by correspondence; 8 transfer correspondence hours.
- Students will be held responsible for degree requirements in effect at the time of matriculation and any changes that are made, so long as these changes do not result in semester credit hours being added or do not delay graduation.
- Degrees that follow this plan must be completed by the end of Summer 2029.
