Engineering: Mechanical Engineering Field of Study
The Mechanical Engineering Field of Study Curriculum is designed for students seeking a bachelor’s degree with a major in engineering.
For information about applicable Engineering Field of Study courses that support your engineering interests, consult with an Engineering faculty advisor.
Austin Community College’s (ACC) field of study courses for mechanical engineering are shown below. The Field of Study Curriculum for Mechanical Engineering consists of 37 lower-division semester credit hours of fully transferable and applicable lower-division academic courses. Academic credit shall be granted on a course-for-course basis at the credit-hour level of the receiving institution. Full academic credit shall be granted on the basis of comparable courses completed, not on specific numbers of credit hours accrued.
