Major in Mechanical Engineering, BS

Mechanical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The Mechanical Engineering program seeks to prepare graduates who, after the first few years of their career, have:
1) Established themselves as valued practicing mechanical engineers working primarily in the region.
2) Become supportive members of the community and active professionally, seeking continuous improvement of skills and professional growth.

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering is a program of study requiring 127-135 credits of undergraduate work, including a two-term senior project capstone requirement completed through oral and written reports. If desired, the candidate may also choose an appropriate sequence of elective courses for concentration in Manufacturing, or Aerospace.

Required coursework can be grouped in four categories: General Education, Major Requirements, Electives or Concentration Requirements, and Additional Requirements.
