Mechanical Engineering, Bachelor of Science Degree

Students display their capstone design projects

The bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering is broadly designed to accommodate a variety of career goals. Students take a core of required courses in engineering, the humanities, mathematics and science, as well as supplementary elective courses. These courses introduce basic engineering science and design concepts and provide students with the opportunity to develop specific career interests in sub-fields of mechanical engineering such as renewable energy, nanotechnology or biomedical engineering.

Our nationally ranked program gives students the chance to work closely with distinguished faculty and get hands-on experience as they move from building Lego cars as freshmen to designing a capstone project of their own choosing as seniors. Students can take advantage of two teaching labs as well as a full-service machine and welding shop used for student projects and research equipment.
