MECHANICAL ENGINEERING SAMPLE PROGRAM


The following document is intended for student use only. It represents the suggested order and semesters in which students should take courses to graduate within 4 years. Since each student is different this listing should only be considered a guide. Specific questions about the sample program should be directed to the Engineering Advisor at (719) 255-3427. Please refer to the Mechanical Engineering Checklist for elective options and course prerequisites and corequisites.

Courses marked with an * are usually available in the summer. Please check with the Engineering Advisor if you would like to take some of these courses during the summer.
