The Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering with the mechanical focus is a comprehensive degree that offers a balanced and strong engineering curriculum that prepares our undergraduates to be able to undertake product design and development roles in industry and take on engineering tasks in a technical setting. The bachelor degree provides a broad background in mechanics of materials, structures and control systems. Our engineering program enjoys a unique partnership with local industries; real world engineering problem-solving is enhanced by practical experience our majors receive through industry internship opportunities. The students are also required to work on a senior capstone engineering design project overseen by a faculty member.
- Our graduates effectively communicate scientific knowledge.
- Our graduates have the knowledge to make informed and ethical scientific decisions.
- Our graduates utilize appropriate quantitative skills in making decisions.
- Our graduates demonstrate the information literacy required for scientific study.
- Our graduates possess the knowledge and skills in engineering and the physical sciences to be successful.
