# Mechanical Engineering

The Barnard 4+1 Pathway in Physics is offered to current Barnard College juniors with a GPA of 3.5 or higher to apply to Master's programs in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and

Mechanical Engineering. Students should inquire with Beyond Barnard and plan on attending an introductory information sessions for the unique 4+1 Pathway they may be interested in

pursuing. Each introductory session will be led by faculty advisors, who will be available to

provide an overview of the program and its requirements, the admission process, and to advise students.

Faculty contact at Barnard: Prof. Reshmi Mukherjee

Faculty contact at SEAS: Dr. Kristin M. Myers, Prof. Gerard Ateshian, Hod Lipson hod.lipson@columbia.edu

**Application Requirements:**

- Official Transcripts
- Personal Statements
- Resume or CV
- Contact information for three reference providers
- Application fee waived

__Deadline: __**February 15th of your Junior Year**

**General Requirements for the 1-Year Masters Program in Mechanical Engineering, Columbia SEAS**

Must meet prerequisite undergraduate coursework, depending on chosen track.

Number of credits to complete: 30

All courses must be graduate courses, 4000-level or higher.

The sequence of courses should show a clearly discernible specialization. Additionally, the courses taken must satisfy the following requirements:

- Minimum of five 4000-level or higher lecture courses in Mechanical Engineering
- Minimum of two 6000-level courses in SEAS, with at least one in Mechanical Engineering
- Minimum of one 4000-level course or higher in mathematics (APMA, MATH, or STAT)

When fulfilling the above requirements, please note the following restrictions:

- Maximum of six credits of research (or thesis work) in Mechanical Engineering
- Maximum of two credits of fieldwork
- Up to 15 credits for graduate courses taken by students in their undergraduate program may be transferred to the MS degree if these points did not count toward their 122 point-requirement for their AM Physics degree. Otherwise, such courses may be used to waive some of the above requirements (e.g., 4000-level math course), allowing students to take other courses toward the MS 30 point requirement.
