Mechanical Engineering Program Information

Bachelor of Science


Curriculum Accreditation Performance


Mechanical engineers are essentially inventors who turn ideas into realities. They apply the theories of mathematics and science and the principles of engineering to design, develop, and manufacture the tools, machines, and mechanical devices that run our world. The discipline offers a wide range of opportunities: Mechanical engineers work on projects from jet engines to highly specialized micro-instruments used in surgery.
