Within the first few years following graduation from the mechanical engineering program, graduates are expected to be pursuing graduate degrees or working as a professional in an area closely related to mechanical engineering, pursuing licensure, and advancing professionally with confidence and experience in one or more of the engineering disciplines of mechanical, mechatronics, thermal and fluid systems.
The Mechanical Engineering program prepares graduates to achieve one or more of the following:
- Successfully pursue a career in mechanical engineering or a related field.
- Pursue advanced studies in mechanical engineering or related technical areas such as systems control, biomedical, robotics, fluids, and other engineering disciplines.
- Successfully pursue life-long learning in areas relevant to their long-term goals and engage in contributing to professional societies.
- Make scholarly contributions by publishing papers and/or technical reports, delivering presentations in conferences, or contributing to engineering publications.
- Conduct applied research and development across disciplines to advance technology and foster innovative techniques.
