Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering
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.
About This Program
Mechanical Engineering is a professional discipline that addresses the utilization
of technological and scientific know-how to advance the efficiency, safety, utility
and reliability of mechanical and thermal systems for the benefit of humanity. Nowadays,
engineering is more interdisciplinary, team-oriented, and environmentally sensitive
than ever before. This program encompasses the traditional roles of Mechanical Engineering
in areas of analysis, design, manufacturing, and testing of mechanical and thermal
systems (i.e. boilers, steam plants, heat exchangers, hydraulic systems, refrigeration,
etc.), while also including emphasis in system integration, propulsion systems, concurrent
engineering, and other competitive engineering practices. Design for manufacture considers
additional elements such as consumer satisfaction, time to market, and others.
The Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET
The degree program in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) curriculum is offered in three concentrations.
