The undergraduate program in mechanical engineering provides first a strong foundation in all of the basic ingredients of engineering: the natural and physical sciences, mathematics, a comprehensive socio-economic-cultural background, the behavioral sciences, and finally the basic engineering sciences that begin the development of problem-solving skills.
The program provides for the detailed study of several advanced topics, including fluid machinery, heat transfer, manufacturing processes, vibration theory, stress analysis, metallurgy, electrical science, and control systems.
The greatest strength of the undergraduate program is the project-oriented design work that requires the student to organize thinking of the multitude of factors on which every design is based - performance, efficiency, esthetics, cost, reliability, safety, reparability, etc. - and to reach sound conclusions that the student must be prepared to defend and implement. This is the art of engineering, and its study permeates the courses and laboratories of the upper-level instruction in this field.
