The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET ( and provides its graduates with a very comprehensive engineering education. A major strength of the program is its emphasis on hands-on experience. Graduates are fully prepared to pursue work in industry, or to continue on for graduate education in engineering, business, and medicine. The curriculum is designed to graduate engineers who can apply fundamental principles of mechanical engineering with competence and sensitivity to the needs of society. To achieve this goal, students follow a sequence of courses beginning with basic mathematics and science, followed by their application to courses in engineering science and engineering design. Relevant clusters of studies in the humanities and social sciences are included within the context of engineering education.

5-Year BSE/MSE Program

For its undergraduate students, the department offers a combined BSE/MSE program. This program is available to undergraduates with a minimum 3.0 cumulative g.p.a. at the end of their Junior year. Application for the BSE/MSE program should be made to the graduate coordinator by the eighth week of the second semester of the junior year. The graduate coordinator will hold the application until the grades for the complete junior year are obtained. For more information on the MSE Mechanical Engineering program, see the graduate catalog.
