Bachelor of science in mechanical engineering
Attend class on the Everett Community College campus and learn from WSU engineering faculty. Most courses are taught by resident faculty at the Everett campus; other courses may be taught interactively from Pullman and other campuses.
Visiting faculty and industry experts also teach selected courses, so you can learn directly from people who are on the cutting edge of manufacturing, automation, robotics, next-generation transportation systems, and more. Local companies offer mentoring and internship opportunities that prepare you for jobs after graduation. WSU faculty and staff are on the Everett campus to provide academic and career advising.
Mechanical engineering at Everett is a degree completion program. While an associate’s degree isn’t required for admission, we recommend pursuing a transfer degree if possible; the associate of science-track 2 (AST-2) degree is well suited for pre-engineering study. Students should also complete as many of the Washington general education (UCORE) requirements as possible before starting the mechanical engineering program; doing so will reduce your load and help you complete your degree sooner.
Mechanical engineering preparation
To be eligible for the mechanical engineering degree program, you will need to complete the pre-engineering curriculum before enrolling at WSU in Everett. See the course list and use our transfer menu to find equivalent courses at your current college.
How to apply
Apply for admission to WSU North Puget Sound Everett as a transfer student. The WSU Everett mechanical engineering program accepts entering students for fall semester only.

3. The academic coordinator will contact you and help you apply for certification into the mechanical engineering program.
4. Pay the WSU tuition deposit, which confirms acceptance of your admission offer. NOTE: This deposit is nonrefundable; pay the deposit only after you are certified into the mechanical engineering program.
Applications received by the January 31 priority deadline are considered first. Applications received afterward are placed in a second pool. Applicants in each group are ranked according to their cumulative GPA in math, science and engineering courses. If the number of applicants exceeds the program’s capacity, students will be admitted according to their GPA rank, with qualified applicants from the priority pool admitted first; remaining slots will be filled from the pool of later applicants.
All students must meet requirements as outlined in the WSU Catalog in order to graduate. See the WSU Catalog for degree requirements and talk with your academic adviser about planning and scheduling your courses.
Mechanical engineering is the most versatile and flexible field in engineering, and is in high demand. The directions you can take with a mechanical engineering degree are nearly endless. Firms in King, Snohomish, Island, Skagit and Whatcom counties, as well as the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility in Bremerton, employ mechanical engineers—and WSU engineering degrees are highly regarded. WSU engineering students often have job offers before they graduate.
