Strong commitment to undergraduate education - Class sizes
are moderate (typically less than 50) and laboratory sections are small (typically less than 25), and the
vast majority of lectures and lab sections are taught by our dedicated,
award winning faculty.
Manufacturing emphasis - Many courses and laboratories focus
on the design, operation, and management of manufacturing systems, and
most faculty members have manufacturing industry experience.
Laboratory intensive - Many courses have a hands-on laboratory
component where students get practical experience with a wide variety
of industry-grade equipment and software tools in our excellent facilities.
Accreditation - The BSME program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012 telephone: (410) 347-7700.
The mission of the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering program is to deliver a laboratory-intensive undergraduate mechanical engineering education to provide students with the tools and skills to excel in the engineering profession, as they pursue life-long learning and make positive contributions to society. The student learning experience will offer unique opportunities for study abroad, undergraduate research, and electives outside of mechanical engineering to develop an enhanced global perspective.
The BSME program will produce mechanical engineering graduates who are able to:
Solve mechanical engineering problems by applying contemporary engineering tools to propose and implement effective solutions.
Design, develop, implement and improve thermal and mechanical systems.
Contribute as informed, ethical, and responsible members of the engineering profession and society as a whole.
Continue lifelong professional development throughout their career.
Collaborate and communicate effectively with others as a member or leader of an engineering or multidisciplinary team in an international setting.
