College of Arts and Sciences

Students interested in a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in mechanical engineering should take the following courses in the following sequence. Although variations of the core classes are possible, it is recommended that students take all the asterisked (*) courses required for the major as suggested below. Students should always check with their advisor if they have questions about a proposed variation including taking any summer courses.

To fulfill the core requirements for a Rockhurst degree, students must fulfill at least one each of the ARI, HSI, and LTI core requirements.

A grade of C or better is required in all asterisked (*) courses (required for the major). Students are responsible for checking prerequisites for any course.

Transfer courses at the 3000- or 4000-level are only accepted with prior advisor approval.

A minimum of 60 hours of service is required. The recommended minimum number of service hours for each year are: 10 hours during the freshman year, 15 hours during sophomore and junior years, and 20 hours during senior year.

 

To find which courses will fulfill core requirements, search the Course Schedule by “Attribute Type” to locate courses in the current and upcoming semester that fulfill specific core requirements. The Course Schedule is located on the Rockhurst Registrar’s webpage at www.rockhurst/registrar.
