The change in the curriculum lies in the opportunity for students to elect to expand their knowledge beyond mechanical engineering, pursuing interests in multidisciplinary topics, or electing to deeply concentrate in one specialized area of mechanical engineering.

Academic Advisors

Our mission is to support and inspire the development of Woodruff School undergraduate students. Our vision is that undergraduate academic advising in the Woodruff School will actively engage students in their educational experience so they can become independent, life-long learners who are innovative and contributing members in their larger community.


Mechanical Engineering does not remove their major restrictions at any time during the registration process.  Students from other majors who wish to take ME or NRE classes may request a permit to override the major restriction.  Permits are only given to non-lab classes and are evaluated on an individual basis.

Undergraduate Research

The Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering has many students who do undergraduate research each semester.  Undergraduate research is a search or discovery of new information; an adventure into solving real world problems.  Having research experience is critical when applying for graduate and professional schools and is impressive to prospective employers.  All students must have a permit to register for research.


The Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering is able to offer tutoring in the ME and COE classes.  Tutoring runs through the last official day of class (excluding final exams, official school breaks and reading days).


In our highly technical and global economy, a bachelor's degree might not provide sufficient skills for the complex engineering problems found in the workplace. As a result, the master's degree has become a valuable asset that provides the additional knowledge and specialization needed to succeed in a technical career. To that end, the Woodruff School offers a BS/MS Program for outstanding students who want to obtain a graduate degree

Change Your Major

Undergraduate students will be permitted one unrestricted transfer between majors until they have earned 60 credit hours.  There are a few departments who have been granted exceptions to that rule, so please contact an advisor in that department to be sure.

Apply to Graduate

On-line Applications for Graduation are due the semester BEFORE you plan to graduate. A different on-line application for graduation is due for every semester that you attempt to graduate. If you do not graduate when planned, you must fill out another on-line application for graduation.
