The program in mechanical engineering is broad and comprehensive. It provides the graduate maximum flexibility to meet the needs of modern society in the changing technological world. The broad formal education allows the mechanical engineer access to careers in aeronautics, aerospace, power generation, energy conversion and conservation, transportation, manufacturing, product design, robotics and controls, as well as other branches of engineering .

Educational Objectives

The program produces graduates who:

  • Practice mechanical engineering in the Fluid-Thermal/Energy Conversion and Machine System stems of the discipline in private, government, or corporate organizations.
  • Practice mechanical engineering in environments that require a variety of roles including engineering problem definition, application of advanced methods of analysis, problem diagnosing, and solution of real-world engineering design problems that are subject to realistic constraints such as cost, safety, etc.
  • Actively contribute in a multidisciplinary engineering environment
  • Enhance their knowledge beyond the BS level, engage in life long learning, and keep current with advancements in engineering and technology.
  • Understand and practice the ethical standards that the profession expects and demands.

Program Outcomes

Graduates of the program will take with them:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues
  • An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
