BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

Courses which repeat or significantly overlap courses taken in the student’s associate degree program cannot be taken for upper level credit. If the associate degree covered the subject matter in one of the required baccalaureate courses, a different course must be substituted and approved by the faculty adviser.

CERTIFICATION OR LICENSURE

The Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering technology is recognized as a “professional degree” that qualifies for experience/education credit toward Professional Engineering (PE) licensure. Graduates from Alfred State’s program are allowed six years of the required 12 years of education/experience credit and are eligible to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE), formerly called Engineer-in-Training (EIT), examination upon graduation.
