Mechanical Engineering Curricula

The BSME curriculum for the last few catalog years is below. A student's catalog year is determined by the semester that the student started at Georgia Tech. Students are eligible to move to a later catalog year that is in effect while they are an enrolled student by filling out a change of major form to change their catalog year.  Students must complete all of the requirements for a catalog year; catalog years cannot be combined.
