I am interested in the Mechanical Engineering programs @ UNC Charlotte and Clemson, and would like to solicit some opinions on the ME department at both schools. Also does anyone know anything about the motorsports/automotive concentrations in these programs? I am a 49 year old man undergoing one of those mid life course corrections and have some trepidation about getting accepted into a good program due to my age, but I hope that does not come about. I'll be transferring after my youngest gets out of HS here in scenic Kansas with an AAS. I'll have Calc I, II and III done as well as 2 semesters of calculus based physics, stats and linear eq. My GPA is well above 3.0. Anyone have any thoughts on over-age admission policies? Any replies will be appreciated.
