Two pathways to the BASMET degree

Continuation pathway for graduates with an Associate of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology.


Students may begin as a freshman and declare the BASMET Program as their major. The opportunity for the intermediate associate degree credential is also available if coursework is completed as outlined.

When will the BASMET program begin?

Junior year coursework began in Fall 2019. Currently, the program is offered in the evenings, because it is anticipated that many students will already be employed with area businesses or would like to be while enrolled.

Transitions from Associate Degree to Bachelor’s Degree Coursework

Associate degree coursework focuses on the static environment. Bachelor’s degree coursework begins to incorporate motion, heat and energy dynamics. So while some of the coursework in years 3 and 4 will explore familiar concepts and labs more extensively, subjects such as motion and thermodynamics will be introduced.

NC State is committed to providing project-based learning throughout all four years of the BASMET program. Experiential learning provides hands-on, real-world experience business and industry desire. Many local business partners will provide access to their facilities for NC State students to work together on actual projects with their employees.
