Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering
The Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering degree program combines in-depth studies with lab and project experience to help students apply the principles of motion, force, energy, and materials for the design, development, analysis, manufacturing, testing and maintenance of mechanical systems.
In our Mechanical Engineering degree program, students will develop competence and acquire knowledge in engineering fundamentals, computer-aided engineering tools, communication skills, design of individual components and multi-component systems, manufacturing processes, mechanical systems, professional ethics, and laboratory exploration.
Mechanical Engineers apply the principles of motion, force, energy, and materials for the design, development, analysis, manufacturing, testing and maintenance of mechanical systems. Mechanical Engineers are suited for employment in a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, biomedical, chemical, electronics, robotics, power-generation, sports, and telecommunication.
The BS in mechanical engineering degree program combines in depth studies with lab and project experience to help students acquire knowledge and skills needed for successful careers or graduate studies. Students develop competence or acquire knowledge in many areas, including engineering fundamentals, computer aided engineering tools, communication skills, design of individual components and multi component systems, manufacturing processes, mechanical systems, professional ethics, laboratory exploration, and more.
The graduate of the bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering program will obtain a foundation in mathematics and science for the mechanical engineering courses offered in the third and fourth years period in their senior year, students have the opportunity to broaden and deepen their technical background through three advanced elective courses and design projects in applied areas such as aerospace engineering, mechanical design, manufacturing and materials processing, thermal and fluid engineering, mechatronics and automation, and biomedical engineering. Engineering design experience using CAD/CAM systems are integrated throughout the curriculum.
A total of 122 semester hours are required for graduation. The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
Students pursuing their degree in the new ME program benefit from:
- The education with the integration of the practice of engineering design throughout the curriculum
- Opportunities for project-based learning and the availability of cutting-edge tools and laboratories
- Elective tracks that allow targeted learning within six unique subject areas
- Interdisciplinary teamwork that encourages close communication, activities, and research within the School of Engineering
- A rich array of on-campus clubs and societies in which engineering students may pursue their interests outside the classroom
Program Educational Objectives
Our Mechanical Engineering graduates will:
- Advance professionally with increasing leadership and responsibility in mechanical engineering or other fields.
- Engage in life-long learning for adaptation to a continuously changing field through graduate work, professional development, and self-study.
