A minimum GPA of 2.0 is required for all MFET, TECH, ENGR, IME, ME, ECE, and CE courses that a student takes as part of their program of study.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology is a practical degree program designed to prepare graduates for challenging careers in the high-tech arena of manufacturing. The program requires a solid foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and liberal studies, as well as a technical core, and a selection of technical electives leading to a specialization in a manufacturing area. A total of 120 semester hours are required in this degree program.
A Manufacturing Engineering Technology student can complete the program in four years, provided they enter USI prepared to successfully complete MATH 118 - Comprehensive Pre-Calculus in their first semester. Those students who do not enter the program ready for MATH 118 may require additional mathematics courses necessary to raise their mathematical abilities to the required level.
In accordance with the University's transfer policy (found in the undergraduate admission requirements and regulations section), the faculty of the engineering department examine on a case-by-case basis the transcripts of students transferring from other institutions. Petition for permission to waive any program requirements must be approved by the chair of the engineering department. After admission into the program, required technical courses may be taken at another institution for transfer of credit only when approved in advance by both the student's advisor and the department chair.
