Mechanical Engineering, B.S.


Return to Degree Offerings Return to: Degree Offerings

The mechanical engineering program provides graduates with a foundation in mathematics, science and engineering fundamentals, as well as a comprehensive knowledge of the mechanical engineering discipline. In the program, emphasis is placed on the general physical laws and theoretical concepts from which all technological applications derive. The program is structured so that studies in mathematics and science prepare the student for the theories of solid structures, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. From this foundation, the principal areas of application are covered, including: design of machines, heat transfer and energy systems. Theoretical study in each of these areas is supported by extensive laboratory work with professional test instrumentation. Graduates often choose careers in the design and manufacturing of thermal and mechanical systems in traditional fields such as automotive, aerospace, HVAC and instrumentation. The mechanical engineering ABET program objectives and outcomes are identified below.

Program Objectives

Our graduates:

  1. Will be employed in mechanical engineering related fields or in other career fields in industry, business, academe, government, or non-profit organizations
  2. Will continue to enhance their professional skills by participating in professional organizations, completing additional college courses, or completing industry-sponsored short courses
