The Mechanical Engineering Department offers a four-year program leading to
the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Students majoring
in other fields may earn a minor in mechanical engineering by special
arrangement. It is possible for students to be employed in a cooperative program
by local industries as an intern.
The undergraduate curriculum is broadly based to accommodate a variety of career goals. In addition to the University core curriculum, students take required courses in engineering, science, and mathematics as well as supplementary elective courses. The courses introduce basic engineering science and design concepts and provide students with opportunity to develop specific career interests.
The mechanical engineering curriculum is accredited by the Engineering
Accreditation Commission of ABET,
http://www.abet.org. The program is designed so that required courses are used to meet ABET requirements for engineering design and engineering science content. The mechanical engineering curriculum meets or exceeds all university core curriculum requirements.
