Will I graduate with a degree in manufacturing?
No, the CME only offers a minor/emphasis program. Students will graduate with bachelor’s degrees from their respective academic departments at the University (Examples: Engineering, Business, Accountancy, etc).
What should I expect from Discovery Day?
Discovery Day is an ideal time for students to learn more about the CME and explore how this program can complement your college experience. The Discovery Day activities are designed to give you a sample of what you will encounter as a CME student. You will participate in specially designed team development challenges, meet with current CME students, learn more about relevant coursework, hear about our CO-OP/Internship opportunities, visit with CME faculty, and interview with the CME staff. This event will help us identify those students who would be best suited for an academic career within the CME. Because our fall enrollment is limited to 50 new students, we take these events very seriously. Invitations for Discovery Day will be sent mid-January. Since Discovery Day has limited space, and is on a first come first serve basis, applicants that are unable to attend will be given other options.
Can I be admitted to both the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College and the CME?
Yes, many of our students are members of both programs.
What are you looking for in an admitted student?
Like many other special programs, the CME takes a very holistic approach when considering a student for admission. These include ACT/SAT score, GPA, extracurricular activities, school involvement, leadership roles, and general interest.
When is the application deadline?
The final deadline for the CME is January 5th.
Can I schedule an online tour?
Yes, online tours can be arranged with advance notice.
