College: Computing, Engrg, and Const
Degree: Bachelor of Science
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Effective Term: Fall 2017
The Osprey Map provides a term-by-term sample schedule for each undergraduate academic program at the University of North Florida. It is designed to guide students in the selection of courses each term. The "Mile Marker" courses in the right-hand column are those courses that should be completed before or by the end of that term. Following the sample schedule, and completing the mile marker courses at the appropriate point of your undergraduate career, will facilitate graduation in four years. The term-by-term model assumes full-time enrollment. For students enrolled part-time, the sample schedule and mile markers should be followed based on the number of credits completed. The Osprey Map should be used in consultation with an academic advisor.

Mechanical engineering is concerned with energy and its transformations and the design of objects and structures that move. Mechanical engineers are responsible for conceiving, designing, manufacturing, testing, and marketing devices and systems that alter, transfer, transform and utilize the energy form that ultimately causes motion. Employment opportunities range over product design, development, manufacturing, sales, management, teaching, and research. Employers include industrial companies, consulting firms, and government agencies and non-governmental organizations. The UNF Office of Career Services provides information on companies seeking mechanical engineering graduates for permanent positions or current students for employment in cooperative education positions. Click on the Students tab of the Career Services webpage for major exploration and employment information. Visit the CCEC Career Development Center webpage for college specific career information and services.

Potential Engineering majors currently in high school should complete classes in Physics, Chemistry and either Precalculus or Calculus.

Students should refer to their personalized Degree Evaluation provided by an academic advisor and to other university resources for additional university and college-specific policies. Visit the undergraduate university catalog for more information.

Summer terms may be utilized to facilitate graduation in four years.

  • Visit the university catalog for a list of General Education requirements. An Associate in Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public university, state college or community college satisfies UNF general education and Gordon Rule requirements. Math selection for First Time in College (FTIC) students is contingent upon Math Placement exam results, the student’s major and credit received through accelerated mechanisms (Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Enrollment, etc).

  • Visit the Mechanical Engineering Program webpage for a complete list of Mechanical Engineering prerequisites.

  • Students requiring preparation for MAC 2311 Calculus I take MAC 1147 Precalculus. Students requiring preparation for CHM 2045/2045L General Chemistry I with Lab take CHM 1025/1025L Introduction to Chemistry with Lab. Students requiring preparation for PHY1041 Physics for Engineers I take PHY 1020 Introduction to Physics. MAC 2311 is a co-requisite for PHY 1041. Beginning the mathematics and science sequences immediately is crucial to stay on-track for graduation.

  • Engineering students are required to complete Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III, Ordinary Differential Equations, Calculus-based Physics or Physics for Engineers I and II (with labs) and General Chemistry I with lab with grades of C+ or better before attempting any upper-level (3000 -4000) Engineering courses. Any of these classes transferred to UNF must be completed with a C+ or better, regardless of the transfer school’s grading scale. Students must repeat all courses not meeting the minimum grade requirements. Find specific admission criteria for this program on your Degree Evaluation, college website, university catalog or consult your academic advisor. For more information visit the School of Engineering Advising Office webpage.

  • All Engineering courses are typically offered once a year and should be completed in the Term indicated on the Osprey Map. For additional information consult an academic advisor.

  • A minimum of 120 hours (48 hours at the upper 3000/4000 level) is required for the bachelor's degree. Mechanical Engineering requires a minimum of 128 total hours.
