Mechanical Engineering Bachelors degree is a 4 ½ year, ABET accreditated undergraduate program to provide you with the building blocks to become a creative problem solver and a successful engineer.

What do Mechanical Engineers do?

Mechanical engineering is often considered the 'chameleon' of engineering because it touches every other branch of engineering.  Mechanical engineers are designing

  • Cutting-edge alternative energy systems, such as hydrogen fuel cells and offshore wind turbines,  
  • Devices to help humankind such as prosthetic limbs, cancer treatments based on nanotechnology, and wheelchairs.
  • The next generation of aerospace flight - Mechanical engineering encompasses the aerospace and thermal science field

 Program Features:

  • An integrated co-operative education program that allows our students to work three semesters for companies that hire mechanical engineers. This gives our students a year of work experience, making them much more competitive in the job market after graduation.  In addition, our students graduate with one solid year of work experience in the mechanical engineering field through our required co-op program and most have full-time job offers by graduation.
  • Faculty who are active in research, providing undergraduates with opportunities to participate in research
  • hands-on learning opportunities to apply engineering knowledge beginning in the first semester and ending with the capstone Senior Design project
  • We offer one-on-one attention and student focus through dedicated faculty and staff including an updated curriculum and laboratories.
