Overview

The B.S. curriculum covers fundamental mathematics and science, various engineering topics, and general education coursework (the University Core). Engineering lecture and laboratory courses are integrated throughout the curriculum and culminate in a year-long capstone design project. Students complete the University Core courses that support the education of the whole person.

The Mechanical Engineering program of Loyola Marymount University provides a solid foundation for work in all of these fields. The flexible and modern curriculum covers contemporary technology as well as the fundamentals for future technologies. It is designed to prepare students for graduate school as well as for employment in industry.

Engineering Design

Engineering design is one of the key tasks of an engineer. It is the process of creatively conceiving a system, component, or process to meet a specified societal need within certain constraints. The mechanical engineering faculty have adopted a methodology of design which guides the student through the design process. The steps of this methodology are studied and practiced in the mechanical engineering curriculum. Engineering design is integrated throughout the curriculum, culminating in a year-long practicum experience.
