Welcome to Mechanical Engineering
A program of Engineering & Mathematics division
Launched in fall 2014, our Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree curriculum is designed, in line with its program educational objectives, to provide students not only solid fundamentals of mathematics and science, strong design and analysis skills of mechanical engineering, but also develop graduates who are conscientious citizens and aware of their ethical responsibilities in a global society.
The BSME curriculum emphasizes hands‐on experience, collaborative problem solving, and societal implications in the design, production, and implementation of mechanical and thermal fluid systems. Our research includes biomedical engineering, robotic surgery, commercialization of medical devices, advanced materials characterization, marine systems, power/energy, and engineering policy. We actively engage with local industries and these industry professionals are valued members of the affiliate faculty.
