Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers an upper-division curriculum which leads to the B.S. in mechanical engineering. The curriculum is based on a strong foundation of fundamental courses in the pure sciences and engineering, and professional courses in mechanical engineering. The curriculum also provides a background in the design, analysis, development, and applications of both complete mechanical systems and a wide variety of individual system components in many different fields.

Emphasis: Sustainable Energy

Technological advances in energy generation and sustainable conservation are becoming increasingly more important aspects within the field of mechanical engineering. This emphasis in sustainable energy will enable students on both ends of the energy spectrum from source to utilization. Sustainable Energy students can gain and understanding of energy conservation and environmental sustainability, alternative and renewable energy, propulsion, and refrigeration and air conditioning.
