Coterminal B.S./M.S. Program in Mechanical Engineering
Stanford undergraduates who wish to continue their studies for the Master of Science degree in the coterminal program must have earned a minimum of 120 units towards graduation. This includes allowable Advanced Placement (AP) and transfer credit. Applicants must submit their application no later than the quarter prior to the expected completion of their undergraduate degree. This is normally Winter Quarter (late January) prior to Spring Quarter graduation. The application must provide evidence of potential for strong academic performance as a graduate student. The Mechanical Engineering department graduate admissions committee makes decisions on each application. Typically, a GPA of at least 3.5 in engineering, science, and math is expected. Applicants must have completed two of ME 80, 112, 131A, and 131B, and must take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) before action is taken on the application. Coterminal information, applications deadlines, and forms can be obtained from the ME Student Services Office.
