Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering

Upon completion of this degree program, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate and apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering with chemistry and calculus-based physics in depth; mathematics through multivariate calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra; probability and statistics; and mechanical engineering sciences: solid mechanics, fluid-thermal sciences, materials science, systems dynamics.
  2. Conduct experiments methodically, analyze data, and interpret results.
  3. Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability, with applications to mechanical systems and thermal systems.
  4. Function in teams to carry out multidisciplinary projects.
  5. Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. Understand professional and ethical responsibilities.
  7. Communicate effectively in writing and orally.
  8. Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context through broad education.
  9. Recognize the need to engage in lifelong learning.
  10. Demonstrate knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. Use the techniques, skills, and modern tools of engineering effectively and correctly in engineering practice with mechanical engineering analysis tools (e.g., ProMechanica); engineering design and manufacturing tools (e.g., ProEngineer); internet and library information resources; and mathematical computing and analysis tools (e.g., Matlab, Excel, LabView, and C).
