Program Educational Objectives

Graduates from our program, within the first few years of their career, will either achieve professional employment in the broad field of mechanical engineering or related disciplines, or enroll in programs of advanced study in engineering, science and other professions, including business and law.

These objectives are consistent with the mission of the Watson School, which is to provide instructional and research services in the broad field of engineering and applied science.

The emphasis in the Mechanical Engineering program is on the application of engineering fundamentals rather than specialized areas within mechanical engineering. Care has been taken to ensure a balanced integration of theory, design and laboratory practice through the selection and sequencing of courses within the curriculum. Computer applications are an integral part of the total education program.

The Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
