Students need 154 credits to complete concurrent major requirements. There are 23 additional credits beyond the mechanical engineering degree requirements to complete both majors—only five credits more than the 18 credits required to add a minor to any major program.
Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering
To pursue concurrent mechanical and nuclear engineering majors, students must first be admitted into the ME program and then add NucE as a second major. An application to pursue concurrent majors should be submitted to the department as early as possible—no later than before your fifth semester—in order to plan a program to complete both majors in four and a half years. You can get the application in the Undergraduate Programs Office or online.
Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering
To pursue concurrent mechanical and biomedical Engineering majors, you must first be admitted into the BME program and then add ME as a second major. An application to pursue concurrent majors should be submitted to the department as early as possible. Find out more about declaring BME as your first major by contacting BME Undergraduate Staff Assistant Erin Ammerman or visit the Department of Biomedical Engineering website.
A minor consists of at least 18 credits that supplement a major. There are several engineering-related minors offered. Minors can also be obtained in programs in other Penn State academic colleges. Reference the Undergraduate Degree Programs Bulletin or the College of Engineering's website for more information.
