Mechanical Engineering and Energy Processes

Students enrolled in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Energy Processes learn that mechanical engineering involves not only machines and their design, but also thermal systems (heating, air conditioning and refrigeration), energy and chemical processes, combustion, materials and their properties, computer simulations, nano-technology and more. Mechanical engineers learn how to identify and solve problems that can help make society safer and better.

The program offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. A Ph.D. in Engineering Science is offered at the college level.

Abet Accredited for Technology The bachelor of science degree program in mechanical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET (www.abet.org).
