Bachelor of Science- Mechanical Engineering

A mechanical engineering education develops student skills in designing product and processes.  Mechanical engineers use analytical tools and problem solving skills to achieve their design and overcome processing barriers and constraints.  Students learn to design products and processes for functionality, aesthetics, and durability, and are taught using a hands-on approach, while working with area employers to learn the best manufacturing methods that result in successful industrial implementations.  In addition to physics and mathematics, it encompasses key elements of dynamics, statics, vibrations, and controls. 


Mechanical engineers play key roles in such industries as forest products, automotive, tire manufacturing, plastics, aerospace, computers, electronics, electromechanical systems, energy, robotics, automation, and manufacturing. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) currently lists 36 technical divisions, ranging from advanced energy systems to aerospace engineering.
