College: Computing, Engrg, and Const
Degree: Bachelor of Science
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Effective Term: Fall 2021
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.

Career Planning
Engaging in career planning activities is significant to student success. UNF offers customized career centers to deliver targeted programs, events, services and resources. First-Year and Exploratory students should visit the Career Services webpage and Sophomore or higher level students with a declared CCEC major should visit the CCEC Career Development Center. The Center provides information on companies seeking mechanical engineering graduates for permanent positions or current students for employment in cooperative education positions.

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 without a B grade or higher in High School Chemistry requiring preparation for CHM 2045/2045 General Chemistry I with Lab take CHM 1025/1025L Introduction to Chemistry with Lab. PHY 1028 Introduction to Physics is a prerequisite for PHY 2048C Calculus Based Physics I. MAC 2311 is a prerequisite for PHY 2048C. Beginning the mathematics and science sequences immediately is crucial to stay on-track for graduation.

  • Satisfactory academic progress for Mechanical Engineering students requires completion of courses in Milestone 1: Calculus I, Calculus II, Physics I with Lab and General Chemistry I with Lab with an aggregate GPA of 2.5 by completion of their third UNF term including summer terms. Students not completing Milestone 1 with an aggregate GPA of 2.5 will be placed under academic probation in the School of Engineering and have an advising hold placed on their record. After the sixth UNF term, students must complete Milestone 1 as well as courses in Milestone 2: Calculus III, Ordinary Differential Equations and Physics II with Lab with an aggregate GPA of 2.5 or they will be suspended from the School of Engineering and must change majors. A student is allowed to change major from an engineering program with a higher aggregate GPA to an engineering program with a lower aggregate GPA. 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.

  • The School of Engineering enforces a One Repeat Rule for all prerequiste courses (those found under Milestone 1 and 2) and all core engineering courses. Students who do not successfully complete a prerequisite or core requirement for a School of Engineering course on the first attempt (i.e., earn a grade of D, F, or W) must repeat the course. The course must be passed with a C or better on the second attempt or the student will be suspended from the engineering program and not allowed to continue in that engineering program. A student is allowed to change major from engineering program with higher aggregate GPA to engineering program with lower aggregate GPA. The only exceptions to this policy are withdrawals for medical, military and fully refunded withdrawals (i.e., WM, WS and WR, respectively). 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.

  • Civic Literacy Requirement: Prior to graduation from a Florida state university, students must demonstrate competency in civic literacy through successful completion of a civic literacy course (AMH 2020 or POS 2041) and by achieving a passing score on an assessment. Consult an academic advisor, the university catalog and visit the Civic Literacy webpage for additional information.

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