Mechanical Engineering, Bachelor of Science Degree

What will I learn in a mechanical engineering degree program?

Successful engineering students arrive at the University with a strong background in math and science. We recommend students have taken physics and chemistry courses in high school and are prepared to take calculus as freshmen.

Our program teaches you to apply your math and science knowledge, along with a creative approach to problem-solving and design, to the development of basic mechanical engineering systems.

Graduates of the bachelor's degree program should have the following skills:

  • Proficiency in entry-level mechanical engineering analysis and design
  • Ability to define, design, execute and analyze experiments with minimal supervision
  • Ability to communicate effectively, verbally and in writing

Graduates are prepared to pursue further professional study in mechanical engineering or related areas, or in medicine, business or law.
