In the modern technical marketplace, college graduates must attain every competitive edge possible to enhance their career opportunities. One way to do this is with a master’s degree following the bachelor’s degree; however, this often results in more specialization than may be desired and may take an additional two years. Another option is to broaden the undergraduate experience, thus opening more opportunities for the graduate. The dual B.S.A.E./B.S.M.E. program awards both the aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering degrees at the completion of a planned curriculum.
A requirement for graduation in aerospace and mechanical engineering is a departmental grade point average of 2.0 or better for all required mechanical and aerospace engineering (MAE) courses. If a required MAE course is repeated, only the hours credited and the grade received for the last completion of the course is used in computing the student’s departmental grade point average. Also a grade of C or better is required in each of the four required mathematics courses and physics 111.
Note: The dual degree requires twenty hours of technical electives. The twenty hours consists of: nine hours of approved aerospace engineering technical electives, nine hours of approved mechanical engineering technical electives, and the final two hours can be either aerospace engineering or mechanical engineering approved technical electives. Students should consult with their academic advisor to select courses that form a clear and consistent pattern according to the career objectives of the student.

NMSU’s Mechanical Engineering (ME) department has been educating mechanical engineers since the university opened in 1888. Beginning in Fall 2006, the ME Department expanded to include an undergraduate degree program in Aerospace Engineering (AE), the first and the only Aerospace program in New Mexico and west Texas, to form the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) department.
Mechanical Engineering (ME) is the most diverse of all engineering disciplines, finding application in almost all industries and product markets. Modern engineering has a role in almost every aspect of life – from home appliances to transportation systems, biomedical devices and power generation.
