What will I learn?

Mechanical Engineering truly embodies the spirit of creativity and innovation as it is one of the broadest areas of study in engineering.

Our ABET-accredited Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) degree program is the branch of engineering that deals with the application of mechanics to the design of machines. Mechanical engineering students can pursue careers in industries such as automotive, aerospace, or power-generation, as well as those focused on noise control, mechatronics, and biomedical applications. To complement the BSME degree, concentrations in acoustics, energy engineering and sustainable design, manufacturing and turbomachinery are available.

The field of mechanical engineering encompasses a broad range of engineering subject areas, including:

Energy Conversion
Heat Transfer
Heating, Ventilating, and Air-Conditioning
Manufacturing/Industrial Engineering
Mechanics of Solids
Mechatronics and Robotics
Noise Control
Nuclear Energy
Solar Energy
System Control

Career Outlook

Our graduates have moved on to work within a wide range of industrial and governmental sectors, working on projects that range from designing aircraft jet engines; the manufacture and operation of miniature surgical robots; streamlining the aerodynamics of spacecraft; design and installation of renewable energy technologies; to the optimization of acoustical characteristics of music halls.
