Five-year BS/MS in Mechanical Engineering

College of Engineering

Your journey to a successful career in the mechanical engineering field begins with the Five-year BS/MS in Mechanical Engineering program at Western New England University. In your five years of study in the program, you will earn both degrees in less time than it would take to earn them separately, saving you tuition. You will focus your undergraduate study in a green, mechanical, or manufacturing concentration, and your master’s level work will address the enhancement and development of skills and knowledge in these fields.

Admissions Requirements

Provisional acceptance is granted to incoming freshmen who score a combined 1200 on the SAT Math and Critical Reading portions and have a 3.5 high school GPA. Students must maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher each year (freshman, sophomore, and junior years) in order to maintain their provisional acceptance. Students who do not qualify for provisional acceptance as an incoming freshman can apply during the first semester of their junior year, as long as they have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.


Students in the program will need to complete a total of 153 credit hours to earn a BS in their engineering field and an MS in Mechanical Engineering degree. You will take four core courses in Engineering Management or Project Management, Quality Engineering, Design of Experiments, and System Integration. At the completion of these 12 credits, you will then choose an advisor and course of study for the remainder of your education. Your choices include an all-course option; a project option, which includes advanced coursework and a final presented project; and a thesis option, that involved advanced coursework and a thesis with presentation.


You'll learn from our experienced faculty who are dedicated to your success. They will guide you not only through coursework, but also through projects, outside research, career opportunities, and internships. The personal attention and support you will receive is unparalleled. All members of the full-time faculty have doctoral degrees with research expertise in areas such as fluid mechanics, solar energy, sensor design, data acquisition, acoustics, mechatronics, and control systems.
