- Please note that students who passed Preliminary Examinations in the Department of Mechanical Engineering older than 5 years, must retake these examinations prior the beginning of the semester following their return.

 

Readmission to a different degree program and/or degree goal in the Department of Mechanical Engineering:

- To change your degree goal upon re-entering the University, you must apply for readmission, and submit the following materials online:

- Three letters of recommendation.

- A statement of purpose.

- A personal history statement.

- A letter of support from an active faculty member in Mechanical Engineering.

Change of Major (Transfer) to Mechanical Engineering

Former or current UC students seeking a different degree and/or an additional degree in Mechanical Engineering, whether the initial degree is completed or not, must apply for readmission and be evaluated within the applicant pool for that admission cycle. Students must complete the Online Application for Readmission and meet all application deadlines and requirements of that program. This will ensure a fair and thorough application review, independent from an applicant’s current or former enrollment at Berkeley.
