Admissions

Whether you are a high school senior, a student who is considering transferring from another university, or a current Ohio State student considering Mechanical or Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering as a major or Nuclear Engineering as a minor, you can find more information here about our department programs.

If you are already a student at OSU and are thinking of changing your major to Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering, just contact one of our undergraduate advisors at maeadvisor@osu.edu or (614) 292-0515 to schedule an appointment.  We'll be happy to show you how your previous coursework may apply to your degree track and review with you requirements for admission. You can also set up an on-campus visit through Ohio State or the College of Engineering via Nina Parshall.

All students who have declared their interest in mechanical engineering or aerospace engineering but have not yet been admitted to the major are designated as pre-major students.  Pre-major students are woking toward the completion of the pre-requisite coursework.  Because admission to the major is competitive, it is important that pre-major students closely monitor their EPHR (eligibility point-hour ratio) and see their academic advisor if they experience any academic struggles.

Pre-major students are also encouraged to start exploring the opportunities available to them outside of their coursework, such as student project teams, the Engineering Co-op & Internship Program, or other university organizations.
