ENME Undergraduate Program
For more information about the Undergraduate Program in Mechanical Engineering, contact the Office of Undergraduate Studies.
Our undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering begins with a solid background in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and basic engineering science courses. This strong foundation during your first two years prepares you for the advanced classes and research projects you will undertake in your final two years. With a graduation requirement of 120 to 125 credits, most of our students graduate within four years. Motivated students can get involved with special projects as early as their junior year, working on group projects to develop one of the most important aspects of mechanical engineering: teamwork.
A Focus on Projects
Over the past decade, the program has established a winning record in intercollegiate competitions. Regional, national, and international competitions in Mini-Baja vehicles, human-powered submarines, solar energy, and others have resulted in numerous prizes and honors for our students and faculty. These successes have drawn the interest of a wide variety of industries, all impressed with our students’ abilities to get the job done.
- Graduates will demonstrate competency in their chosen career path having mastered the fundamental areas of study that comprise a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering.
- Graduates will utilize skills in teamwork, leadership, and communication gained in their program of study, apply critical thinking to problem solving, and act in a professional and ethical manner in the area in which they apply their degree.
- Graduates will show a commitment to on-going professional development, whether through graduate study, research programs, training courses, or leadership opportunities thereby adapting to an evolving, competitive global work environment.
