Does it make sense to apply for M.Eng grad if ?

  1. Jun 22, 2009 #1
    Is it possible or at least likely to pursue graduate study as a mechanical engineer if your bachelor's degree is in a non-engineering field? I am highly motivated and very interested in obtaining a mech. eng degree, but I am afraid that I lack the math and science pre-requisites that I imagine one would need to go on to an M. Eng. master's program.

    Any idea?

    I have a B.A in Industrial Design. I have worked as a professional product designer for the past 7 years.

    Well I'm not an engineer but I would suggest contacting the schools you are interested in and seeing what program you can get into. Some schools would allow you to spend a year taking undergrad courses if you are not specialized in the field before you begin grad work.

    Thanks VeeEight. I'll look into that.
