  • Mechanical Engineering

    Mechanical engineers are responsible for creating and manufacturing devices and systems that alter, transfer, transform and utilize energy forms that cause motion. The baccalaureate program provides a broad education with a strong foundation in mathematics, science and basic engineering sciences. Advanced courses develop specialized engineering skills in manufacturing, robotics, solid mechanics, thermal and fluid systems, dynamics and controls, and biomechanics.

    Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

    Before Graduating Students Must

    • Pass an assessment by two or more faculty and/or industry practitioners of performance on a major design experience.
    • Pass assessment in two courses of individual assignments targeted to each learning outcome. Assessment will be provided by the instructor of the course according to department standards.
    • Complete an exit interview in your final semester.
    • Complete requirements for the baccalaureate degree, as determined by faculty.

    Students in the Major will Learn to
