The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a grad track option for currently enrolled UNT undergraduate students majoring in mechanical engineering technology (MEET).
In this grad track option, the student can take a maximum of nine (9) credit hours of graduate courses while completing the BSET degree. After earning the BSET degree, these credit hours can be counted toward the MS degree. Prior to registering for these courses, the student must be admitted to the grad track option and obtain approvals from the undergraduate and graduate coordinators.
