Welding and Metallurgical Engineering Technology (B.S.W.M.E.T.)
Metallurgy and Welding are two technologies that both have their roots in the Industrial Revolution, where the joining of metals began with the forge welding of pig or wrought iron. Because of their fundamental nature, these technologies are intertwined. The ability to develop and join metals have made immeasurable contribution to the transportation, aerospace, agricultural and defense industries.
The Wayne State University's B.S. in Welding and Metallurgical Engineering Technology (B.S.W.M.E.T.) program will bring together the theoretical and practical aspects of welding and metallurgy to provide industry with engineers proficient in both areas.
The B.S.W.M.E.T. is designed to admit students who satisfy the undergraduate admission requirements of the University and have an associate degree or equivalent course work in preparatory programs such as welding technology or closely related disciplines. A minimum g.p.a. of 2.5 is required for admission into the program. Students with a g.p.a. of 2.0 to 2.5 may be admitted as Pre-Engineering Technology students, and may be transferred into the B.S.W.M.E.T. program upon successful completion of pre-calculus (MAT 1800) and physical science courses, with a g.p.a. of 2.5 or above. A Mathematics Placement Examination is required of students who have not already earned advanced credit in pre-calculus.
