University rank #472 (BCR) , PA,
We offer a bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering at California State University, Fresno. Mechanical engineering is the use of basic science in the design and manufacture of components and systems. This requires the application of physical and mechanical principles in the development of machines, energy conversion systems, materials, and equipment for measurement and control. 

About

Knowledge of mathematics, physics, and chemistry lies at the core of this field. Application of this knowledge uses engineering technology -- a disciplined way of thinking, modeling, and testing that enables development of new systems despite incomplete information and uncertainty.

The undergraduate and graduate programs in mechanical engineering provide basics and advanced studies in design, advanced materials, alternative energy and sustainable systems, engineering mechanics, mechatronics and controls and thermo-fluids. All areas include statics, dynamics, materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and experimental methods. 

This bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering is offered at California State University, Fresno. Application areas in design include mechanics of materials, applied mechanics, structural and manufacturing aspects of producing equipment, and vibrations. Application areas in thermal and fluid mechanics focus on energy conversion and include combustion, heat engines, refrigeration, and fluid flow.

Our mission is to provide a broad-based, practice-oriented Mechanical Engineering education that enables graduates to become technically proficient, professional leaders through engagement in the community and lifelong learning.
