The B.S. in Engineering with a Mechanical Engineering concentration applies the principles of mathematics, physics, and related engineering sciences to the design and analysis of automobiles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, buildings and bridges, industrial equipment and machinery, medical devices, and more. Students learn concepts of energy conversion, fuel and combustion technologies, biomedical product manufacturing, and noise control and acoustics.
With the 4+1 integrated degree program, students can go on to earn an M.S. in Engineering Management with only one additional year of study.
The Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET has accredited the B.S. degree programs in Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering.
