Academic Programs

The Department of Mechanical Engineering has distinct program objectives for both undergraduate and graduate education.  Our objectives are based on the needs of our constituencies. We focus on the professional and personal development of our students. We continuously assess and improve our ABET-accredited undergraduate curriculum.

Graduates of the program will be proficient engineering problem solvers capable of identifying, formulating, and solving engineering problems by applying their knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering. They will be effective designers capable of modeling, designing, and experimentally verifying a thermal system, a mechanical system, a component, or a process while meeting specified engineering requirements and considering real-world constraints and the impact their solution may have on society. They will be effective verbal and written communicators, and team members capable of clearly developing and explaining their engineering solutions to diverse groups using appropriate tools and technology. Graduates will display a keen awareness of their professional and ethical responsibility and practice lifelong learning.  They will be stewards of the environment as they consider the impact that their designs have in a global context.

The mechanical engineering undergraduate degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
