Overview

Mass production wouldn’t be possible without mechanical engineers. They design and improve every kind of machinery, from the largest systems like airplanes and oil drills to the smallest like hearing aids and batteries. As one of the most diverse engineering disciplines, mechanical engineering is used in such varied industries as aerospace, automotive and alternative energy. 

Why study Mechanical Engineering program at California Baptist University?

One of the most important parts of students’ college training will be learning in a real engineering job. Students have a special course to prepare them for this first engineering job. Their official internship will be the summer of junior year, although other opportunities may occur for them to work in the industry. Students have interned with such companies as Inceptus Design, NSWC, UTC Aerospace Systems, HP, and more.

Industrial representatives continue to emphasize that they wish new engineers had more project management experience. Engineering students in their junior year work with and co-mentor business students. Our goal is that eventually all students in our program will develop one of their own creative ideas and go through the process to receive a provisional patent.
