The mechanical engineering program is designed for students who desire to enter industry or pursue advanced studies. The curriculum provides a broad range of courses in the areas of solid mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, design and manufacturing, and dynamics. The program prepares students for careers as practicing engineers in areas such as the design and manufacturing of mechanical and, increasingly, electromechanical components and systems. The curriculum places an emphasis on design for manufacturability, materials, modeling, simulation, process control and rapid prototyping. One important aspect of this program is the balance between theory and hands-on practice that prepares students to be effective and practical engineers when they graduate.
