Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, B.S. Double Major

This double major option allows a Saint Louis University student to take additional courses to complete a bachelor’s degree with both aerospace and mechanical engineering majors. The student must complete the standard requirements for one of these majors (the primary major). In addition, the student must complete an additional 23 or 25 credits in the other field (the secondary major). Students pursuing this option are responsible for creating a schedule that allows them to finish all these courses in a timely fashion while meeting all pre-and co-requisite requirements.

Non-Course Requirements

All Science and Engineering B.A. and B.S. students must complete an exit interview/survey near the end of their bachelor's program.

Continuation Standards

Students must maintain a minimum 2.00 GPA.

Roadmaps are recommended semester-by-semester plans of study for programs and assume full-time enrollment unless otherwise noted.  

Courses and milestones designated as critical (marked with !) must be completed in the semester listed to ensure a timely graduation. Transfer credit may change the roadmap.

This roadmap should not be used in the place of regular academic advising appointments. All students are encouraged to meet with their advisor/mentor each semester. Requirements, course availability and sequencing are subject to change.
