Mechanical Engineering Major (Bachelor of Science)

Mechanical engineers must be extremely versatile and can be found in a large variety of private and public sector organizations. They may be involved in product design and development, manufacturing, project management, power generation or other operations. Therefore, the mechanical engineering curriculum is broad-based and emphasizes fundamental engineering sciences and applications.

Approximately equal emphasis is given to machine design, structural analysis, thermodynamics and energy, systems and control, and materials science. Classroom lectures are supplemented by laboratories.

The student completes a capstone design project as the culmination of the undergraduate program.

A primary goal of the mechanical engineering degree program is to provide an educational experience and training that will prepare its graduates to excel within the broad scope of the mechanical engineering profession.
