Welcome to the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering
The Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering (MCE) offers programs of study at both undergraduate and graduate levels. For undergraduate students, the Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Programs lead to degrees of bachelor of science in civil engineering (BSCE) and bachelor of science in mechanical engineering (BSME). The department also offers graduate instruction and research leading to Master of Eng. in Materiel Engineering with emphasis on Mechanical Engineering (ME) or Civil Engineering (CE). Students in the MCE Department have access to the most modern instructional and laboratory infrastructure. Among MCE faculty are internationally recognized authorities in their respective fields of expertise. Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering are extremely versatile technical fields with the most promising career prospects.
The degree program in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) curriculum is offered in three concentrations, General ME Concentration, Manufacturing Systems Concentration , and Propulsion Systems Concentration. Graduates of the BSME program are well prepared to pursue careers in research and development, design, manufacturing and management in a diverse array of industries including power engineering and energy systems, aerospace, automotive, robotics, etc. They are also well prepared to pursue graduate and professional degrees.
The degree program in Civil Engineering (BSCE) provides a curriculum of study deigned to give students a thorough grounding in both theoretical and practical areas of Civil Engineering. Civil engineers plan, design, construct and maintain physical works and facilities that are deemed essential to modern human life. Civil Engineering includes the broad categories of construction, structural engineering, soil mechanics and foundation engineering, transportation engineering, water resources and hydraulic engineering, environmental engineering, surveying and mapping, city planning and municipal engineering.
The mission of the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering at Alabama A&M University, consistent with that of the University and the College of Engineering, Technology and Physical Sciences is to provide quality education, research, and service to its constituents. The Department commits to provide qualified graduates in the growing fields of mechanical and civil engineering by fostering:
- Excellence in mechanical and civil engineering education
- Physical facilities and learning resources that are conduvive to learning, research, extension and development
- A sense of scholarship, leadership and service
- A search for new knowledge through research and its application
- Programs necessary to address the needs of capable students
