The Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.


Program Goals, Objectives & Design Integration

The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Department is to provide an excellent educational experience for the students in its programs. This experience includes an emphasis on the technical, communication, and teamwork skills that graduate engineers need to succeed, in both the workplace and society in general. In order to achieve these goals, the department places great importance on teaching, research, scholarship, engineering practice, and service to the university community and the Engineering profession. The mechanical engineering program is structured to prepare the graduate for the professional practice of engineering and/or graduate school. The curriculum emphasizes a rigorous treatment of the mathematical and scientific approach to the solution of engineering problems. It provides a coherent set of courses in energy conversion and structures/motion in mechanical systems. The program has design across the curriculum and is capped with an integrated design experience in the form of a senior project.

Most technical courses in the program are offered during the day only.

Cooperative Education Programs

A Cooperative Education (Co-op) is an optional program available at the College of Engineering where you have the opportunity to gain professional work experience before graduation. It is designed to give you the chance to apply the knowledge learned in the classroom to real life problems. You will be exposed to the latest technology and new ideas at a worksite helping you understand your field of work more extensively. During the Co-op, you will make valuable connections with professionals in your field. A cooperative education can enhance and strengthen you academically, professionally and personally.

Below are the five-year curricula for the Co-op programs leading to the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Bioengineering, and the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Energy Systems. The minimum requirement for graduation is 127 semester hours.
