Program Admission Application

The Mechanical Engineering (ME) Program at UVU is an engaging and challenging major that prepares students for exciting careers and graduate programs in Mechanical Engineering. Students begin their study by completing a series of foundation courses in Math, Science, Writing and Engineering. After successful completion of these foundation courses, students will apply and be accepted to the Mechanical Engineering Program before enrolling in upper division (3000 level or higher) major courses. A student not meeting all of the admission requirements may be admitted with provisional status for one semester.

Applications for admission to the mechanical engineering program are accepted until two weeks prior to the start of a new semester. However, we encourage you to apply as early as possible.

Before Applying to the UVU ME Program

  1. Apply to Utah Valley University
    • Acceptance to UVU is required prior to submitting an application to the UVU Engineering Program. Application to the University can be done online at the UVU admissions page. This includes transferring all credits from other institutions. All UVU deadlines and fees apply. Students are encouraged to apply to UVU early so all transfer credits can be evaluated before UVU Department of Engineering application deadlines. In order to graduate from UVU, students will be required to meet all UVU graduation requirements.
  2. Foundational Coursework
    Complete Foundational course work. A final grade of C or higher is required.
