The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree is housed in the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the College of Engineering.

With curriculum tracks in robotics, propulsion or energy, students can focus on uninhabited aerial vehicles, planetary rovers and autonomous space vehicles, design propulsion systems like jet engines or develop new energy conversion systems.

Access to highly scientific and specialized labs prepares graduates to work in their chosen field.

The freshman year in Mechanical Engineering is common to the Aerospace Engineering degree program. The second year in ME builds fundamental skills in math and physics while introducing students to Engineering Mechanics and the Thermal Sciences.

During the second semester of their sophomore year, Mechanical Engineering students in Embry-Riddle’s program in Prescott will start taking courses aligned within the focus areas of:

  • Robotics: Emphasizes the design and analysis of autonomous vehicles that include unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), autonomous space vehicles, and planetary rovers.
  • Propulsion: Emphasizes the thermal sciences and design and analysis of turbomachinery. Jet aircraft engines are the primary area in which coursework goes in-depth but piston and rocket propulsion are also studied.
  • Energy: Emphasizes the design of renewable energy systems.
