The Department of Mechanical Engineering’s curriculum leads to a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.)  degree. The B.S. degree program in mechanical engineering  is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

Aligned with the mission statements of the University and The College of Engineering and Natural Sciences, the mechanical engineering program educational objectives are to provide graduates with the ability to apply the knowledge required to pursue professional careers in a global marketplace; and to pursue advanced studies and continued professional development.

Mechanical engineering students, upon graduation, should demonstrate:

  • A sound foundation in both the thermal and mechanical systems areas;
  • The ability to design and create sophisticated engineering systems;
  • The ability to work professionally in a globally diverse environment;
  • An understanding of engineering systems and the attendant reasoning skills;
  • Sharpened analytical and creative thinking skills;
  • The ability to use modern experimental and data analysis techniques for mechanical engineering applications;
  • Strong problem-solving skills including the use of appropriate analytical and computational approaches;
  • Strong communication and teamwork skills; and
  • A commitment to life-long learning needed to perform responsibly and ethically as an active engineering professional or other productive member of society.
