Students will benefit from a broad-based education that encompasses applications as diverse as:

  • automotive or aerospace vehicles
  • power generation
  • manufacturing processes,
  • plastic and other petrochemical products
  • even electronic hardware

These applications require a fundamental understanding of:

  • the static and dynamic relationships between forces
  • the nature of materials
  • principles of energy conservation and transformation
  • design and analysis of machines
  • the transmission of heat
  • the flow of fluids

The mechanical engineering curriculum provides a rigorous treatment of fundamental principles in these subject areas and the necessary background in mathematics and the basic sciences to prepare students for these courses. Through elective choices, students may investigate special areas of mechanical engineering including internal combustion engines, turbomachinery, power plants, mechatronics, and advanced computational methods.
