Mechanical Engineering

Accreditation

The Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org

Mechanical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The program produces graduates who:

  • Practice mechanical engineering in the Design, Control, and/or Manufacture of Fluid Thermal/Energy Conversion, and Machine and Living Systems, in industry and government.
  • Practice mechanical engineering in environments that require a variety of roles including engineering problem definitions, 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 to a multidisciplinary engineering environment
  • Enhance their knowledge beyond BS level, engage in lifelong learning, and keep current with advancements in engineering and technology.
