Mechanical engineering is one of the most diverse programs in the field of engineering. It affects almost all aspects of our lives and embraces many areas of specialization: automotive systems; bioengineering; combustion and propulsion; design methodology and tribology; dynamic systems and controls; energy systems and thermodynamics; fluid mechanics; heat transfer; manufacturing and production; materials behavior and processing; and micro-scale and nano-scale phenomena and systems.
Graduates will work in technical leadership and management positions in such fields as:
- Manufacturing, energy, and transportation.
- Defense and security
- Computer software and electronics
- Health and biological engineering
- Research and development
- Thermal systems
- Industrial automation
The curriculum is designed as a sequence of increasingly specialized experiences.
1st Year: mastering the basics of science
2nd Year: taking fundamental engineering courses
3rd Year: taking specialized mechanical engineering courses in the subfields of mechanical engineering, e.g. mechanical design, and manufacturing
4th Year: broadening and deepening knowledge of the field through technical elective courses
Engineering design, communication, teamwork, and laboratory experiences are integrated throughout the curriculum.
- Computer-Aided Design
- Design for Manufacturability
- Internal Combustion Engines
- Introduction to Robotics
