The undergraduate program in mechanical engineering
trains students in a technically sound, challenging, and professional
manner, laying the foundation for a productive career and enabling
graduates to make positive contributions to their profession and
society. This is achieved with a thorough preparation in the humanities,
mathematics, and basic sciences as well as up-to-date mechanical and
aerospace engineering fundamentals and applications using the most
advanced tools and methods available. In the senior year, the capstone
design and manufacturing course allows students to solve open-ended,
multicriteria engineering problems. Emphasis is placed on teamwork,
project management, conceptualization, detailed design, computational
analysis, and manufacturing. At the end of the yearlong course, students
will have experienced a full product development cycle from concept to
construction and testing.
The bachelor of science program in mechanical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
