The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Manufacturing Engineering, Bachelor of Science Manufacturing Engineering

The Manufacturing Engineering Department will provide a quality engineering education to prepare students for the practice of engineering. A strong laboratory component in the curriculum, with opportunities for industrial internships and research experiences will provide engineering skills that enhance the understanding of the applications of engineering sciences and the realization of the importance of lifelong learning. A strong emphasis on verbal and written communications will be stressed. 

Core Curriculum - 42 Hours

The Core Curriculum serves as a broad foundation for the undergraduate degree. All candidates for a bachelor’s degree must achieve core student learning outcomes, including communication, critical thinking, empirical and quantitative skills, teamwork, personal responsibility and social responsibility, by completing courses within each category or component area of the Core Curriculum as outlined below.

The University has approved specific courses that satisfy Core Curriculum Requirements. Approved courses can be found on the Core Curriculum Page. Students seeking the most efficient way to complete the core curriculum and major or minor requirements are advised to take approved courses that can fulfill both requirements. Although core curriculum courses can also be used to fulfill major or minor requirements, earned credits hours are only applied once. The courses listed below fulfill core curriculum and major requirements. Students who have completed a core curriculum category with courses other than those listed below will still be required to take the listed course(s) to meet major requirements.
