Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest of the engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers are involved in research and development, design, manufacturing, and technical sales of a wide variety of products. Specific areas of involvement include computer-aided design and manufacturing; robotics; power plants; engines; materials; automotive vehicles and systems of transportation; industrial equipment; control and measurement devices; instrumentation; biomedical devices; apparatus for the control of air, water, noise, refuse, and other types of pollution; underwater technology; space flight equipment; and safety devices and sensors.
The Educational Program Objectives for graduates of this program are:
1) Holds position in engineering or other professional career, or is engaged in advanced study;
2) Functions effectively in multidisciplinary teams, is able to communicate effectively and use scientific and technological tools; and
3) Engages in service activities such as participation in professional societies or community groups and always recognizes the environmental, societal, and ethical contexts of his/her work.
Based on the objectives above, our program presents students with the knowledge and skills of the profession that will be useful as they begin their careers and/or prepare for advanced studies. We offer a comprehensive program that is well balanced among the technical areas of the thermal-fluid sciences, mechanics, materials, systems and design.
