The number of the course is being changed from MECH-512 to MECH-412, such that it is clear that the course is intended for senior level undergraduate students.
Kettering University is eliminating 500 course numbers due to HLC concerns about our graduate program. Since our 500 level courses are defined as "mezzanine" they are not considered to be graduate courses by HLC. This change makes it clear that graduate students should not take an undergraduate capstone course.
