The Mechanical Engineering Program strives to graduate mechanical engineers who understand the ethical, social, economic, and environmental context of their profession and who apply their knowledge with judgment and responsibility to develop ways to utilize the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind. The program prepares students to either immediately enter professional practice upon graduation or to pursue graduate studies, without neglecting the requirements for a fruitful life by emphasizing the University’s model of liberal arts education. The curriculum of the program shares three basic tenants: scientific and technological excellence, balance between theory and practice, and a commitment to self-maintained, and enduring personal and professional development. The results are mechanical engineers naturally inclined to life-long learning and problem solvers ready to deal with any technological challenge at local, regional, and/or international scales.
The graduates of the Mechanical Engineering program will have:
