It is the mission of the Mechanical Engineering (ME) Department to provide students with a professional education that is both technically current and well rounded. We strive to prepare our students for professional careers in engineering, and to instill in them an awareness of professional and social responsibility. The ME Department offers four-year baccalaureate degrees in mechanical engineering and industrial engineering, as well as a part-time bachelor of science in engineering.

All of the degree programs are committed to delivering high-quality undergraduate education, stressing laboratory experiences and preparation for professional practice in an intimate, personal learning environment.

Laboratories are used extensively to support the curricula. The department maintains undergraduate laboratories in the areas of materials characterization and testing, manufacturing processes, energy systems, fluid power, electromechanical systems, ergonomics and computer-aided engineering, as well as laboratory space devoted to senior design project work.
