Mechanical Engineering

What is Mechanical Engineering?

The Mechanical Engineering program provides a quality, well-rounded education that is based on imparting fundamental knowledge and skills in mathematics and pure science as well as engineering science and design.

ME graduates are uniquely suited to jobs in all traditional areas of mechanical engineering including mechanics, machine design, energy systems, fluid flow, heat transfer and thermodynamics. To ensure this, all students take the same fundamental courses, but then choose a series of technical electives geared towards their own interests or career objectives. Additional experience is gained through student design projects and voluntary participation in student clubs, honor societies, and design competitions. See our brochure

Mechanical Engineering Program Mission:

The Mechanical Engineering program's mission is to provide a quality, well-rounded education that is based on imparting fundamental knowledge and skills in mathematics and pure sciences as well as engineering science and design, and to prepare graduates who will be effective contributors to the Mechanical Engineering profession within a short time after their graduation.

Mechanical Engineering Program Objectives
(per 2009-2011 University Catalog) :

The Mechanical Engineering curriculum is designed to:

  1. provide a solid background in mathematics and science coupled with an applications-oriented polytechnic approach in the presentation of engineering course material which may be synthesized over the first few years of one's engineering career
  2. provide a comprehensive program of general education courses that will provide students with the necessary background to understand the economic, environmental, ethical, political, societal and cultural impact of their engineering solutions and decisions which may be implemented in ethical and professional situations soon after graduation
  3. develop good written and verbal communication skills which will be used as a cornerstone in the early development years of a young engineer's career
  4. encourage lifelong learning in their chosen field underscoring the importance to continue to obtain professional development and training on the job as needed during one's entire career
  5. provide the necessary tools and background to become a professional engineer who will continue to be effective in the first few years of his/her professional assignment

American Society of Mechanical Engineers
ASME helps the global engineering community develop solutions to real world challenges. Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world.
