Students seeking to transfer into the MEP from another UNM department or program must get permission (signatures) from their current department and the Manufacturing Engineering Program. Admission to the MEP is not automatically given.
CURRICULAR PRACTICAL TRAINING
International students on F-1 visas need permission to engage in employment for curricular practical training as provided in the regulations of the U.S. Immigration and NaturalizationService. Curricular Practical Training is employment in a job related to the student's field of study that is either required for all students completing the degree or for which the student will be enrolled in an internship or practicum course (such as Project) and receiving academic credit. The training is intended to enhance and supplement the formal, classroom education. The International Advisor in the Office of International Programs and Studies (OIPS) must authorize such employment. Before this authorization can be granted, OIPS must have a statement from the student's academic advisor indicating that the training is required for completion of the degree for all students or indicating the internship/practicum course in which the student is enrolled. The advisor must also indicate the date the student is expected to complete all degree requirements. The date of completion is not necessarily the end of the term or the graduation date, but the date all requirements for the degree are fulfilled.
The CPT FORM is available from OIPS, 2111 Mesa Vista Hall, phone 505-277-4032. The CPT form MUST BE COMPLETED AND SIGNED BY THE ACADEMIC ADVISOR OR OTHER AUTHORIZED DEPARTMENT PERSONNEL, NOT BY THE STUDENT.
MEME and MEME/MBA candidates are expected to have completed at least 520 hrs (3 months full time) of work in a manufacturing setting, as an intern or employee, prior to graduation. These requirement can be met while the student is in residency or prior to admission to the program. All work used to satisfy this requirement must be documented in a letter from an employer, noting the period of work and the manufacturing tasks performed.
EXTENSION OF INCOMPLETE:
A student may apply for an extension of the time allowed to complete the required course work removing the "I" grade. The request for extension may be obtained in the Office of Records and Registration. For the student who re-enrolls in residence, a one semester extension may be granted. If an extension is granted, it is the student's responsibility to remove the "I" grade by the date indicated.
