The Engineering program, through its curricula, strive to educate and train engineers who have the desire to learn and the breadth of vision to formulate and solve problems of today and tomorrow. It is expected that a student who applies himself or herself and successfully completes one of the engineering programs will not only be technically prepared but also broadly educated, and thus read to make a significant contribution.
To a great extent, our standard of living and high level of technology are due to the diligent and innovative efforts of engineers. Future accomplishments could help increase energy and food supplies, develop more contamination-free power plants, aid in medical science's fight against disease, and expand our computational and design skills beyond imagination. While scientists "explore what is," engineers "create what never has been."
The mechanical engineer may design a component, a machine, a system or a process. Mechanical engineers analyze their design using the principles of physics to insure the product functions safely, efficiently, reliably, and can be manufactured at a competitive cost. Mechanical engineers work in automotive, aerospace, chemical, computer, communication, paper, and power generation industries. Mechanical Engineers are found in virtually any manufacturing industry.
