Philadelphia University’s ABET-accredited B.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering will prepare you with a breadth of engineering skills and knowledge while facilitating technical depth in vital mechanical engineering areas, including:
- Design and Manufacturing
- Energy and Thermal-Fluid Science
- Mechanics and Kinematics
- Control and Mechatronics
You will begin developing science, math, and engineering analysis skills in foundational courses, and progress to using modern computer aided design, and mathematical modeling tools and manufacturing equipment like metal machining and 3-D printing.
Engineering design is taught from the first semester and further strengthened in upper-level courses culminating in a two-semester senior design project. For example, mechanical engineering seniors designed, built, and tested a vortex tube cooler, which produced chilled air from a room temperature compressed air reservoir with no moving parts.
Upon graduation, you will be qualified to pursue professional engineering licensure (P.E.).B.S.E Mechanical Engineering
