Mechanical Engineering

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE (Pending NCFHE Approval)

Mechanical Engineers design and manufacture everything from smaller devices such as microwaves to larger systems such as automobiles and spacecraft. Mechanical Engineering applies mathematics, physics, and the principles of material science to the analysis, design, manufacture, and maintenance of mechanical systems. For this, a broad range of skills is needed, including the ability to model the mechanics of solids and fluids, as well as the flow of heat and energy.

Since these skills are required for virtually everything that is made, mechanical engineering is arguably the broadest and most diverse of engineering disciplines. Graduates of Mechanical Engineering programs pursue careers in a wide range of sectors, including the defense, biomedical, manufacturing, mining, and automotive industries. Mechanical Engineers play a central role in the aerospace, automotive design, and manufacturing industries, as well as in biomedical technology.

Degree Requirements

The BS in Mechanical Engineering degree is a four-year degree program.

Core topics you will study as part of the AUM curriculum include solid and fluid mechanics, thermal sciences, dynamics and controls, and mechanical design. You will also learn about machine dynamics, energy and power systems, mechanical properties of engineering and biomaterials, computational methods, HVAC systems, and instrumentation.
