The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering (ME). The program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (EAC/ABET). Individuals enrolling in this degree program are given the opportunity to develop a strong background in Engineering Science and to learn the analysis, design, and synthesis tools necessary to contribute in traditional and emerging areas of technology.
The department has excellent laboratory facilities where students receive hands-on instruction from faculty members. Computer-aided design (CAD) facilities, including state-of-the-art workstations, are routinely used. Some classes are taught by adjunct faculty from local industries, giving students the opportunity to interact with engineering professionals engaged in relevant engineering practice.
Because of the broad engineering training in this program, graduates may find employment in nearly all industries, including companies or government agencies associated with aerospace, automotive, energy, petroleum, manufacturing, and research.
