BSME Field Experience

BSM Mathematics Courses

BSM offers a large selection of interesting and challenging mathematics courses. You may take at most one BSM mathematics course. Those who wish to take a BSM mathematics course is required to attend the BSM academic orientation, which is held on Friday before the first day of classes. 

The following are cross-listed with BSME, although you may take any BSM mathematics course (except for RES Research Opportunities). See this page for syllabi and a complete list of BSM course offerings.

  • AL1 Introduction to Abstract Algebra
  • MAN Introduction to Mathematical Analysis
  • CO1.A Combinatorics 1
  • CO1.B Combinatorics 1
  • C&P Conjecture and Proof
  • MPS Mathematical Problem Solving
  • NEG Non-Euclidean Geometries
  • PRO Probability Theory
  • SET Set Theory
  • THC Theory of Computing
  • TOP Introduction to Topology

Note: BSM mathematics courses tend to be more challenging than typical undergraduate courses. Be sure to check the syllabus of each course for the prerequisite knowledge needed.

Humanities/Language/Culture Courses

  • Indoor Soccer: Wednesday 10:15 am – 12:45 pm (no more places)


  • We will email you the sign up sheet at the start of the semester.
  • McDaniel students have a priority, so not all PE classes might be available for BSM/BSME students.
  • Classes meet at the gym of the Veterinary University (opposite corner of Bethlen Gábor tér than the BSME building, same building as the cafeteria, Budapest, István u. 2, 1078, Building G). Ball games meet in the gym, salsa/yoga meet in the studio, which has a separate entrance from the outside of the building, closer to István street, and weight training meets in the weight room in the basement.
  • The McDaniel calendar is slightly different from the BSM/E calendar, so check with the instructor about meeting times.
  • A PE class will be listed on your transcript with 0 credit earned. If you take two PE classes, you will earn 0.25 credit total on your BSME transcript.

You can also use the weight room at the gym, see this page for more information.
