The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers an ABET accredited Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. The department is made up of a diverse faculty with the expertise necessary to expose you to state-of-the-art principles. Within the two traditional concentrations of energy systems and solid mechanics lie a great number of sub-specialties. You can take classes in areas from forensics, to the next generation of atmospheric and space propulsion systems, to the latest in composite materials.
As a student in the Mechanical Engineering department at CBU you are part of a great traditon. Our students have a superior record at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers' regional student conference, as well as The Great Moon Buggy Race held at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. Through participation in these events, you have the opportunity to hone your skills in areas such as oral presentations, written communication, fabrication, and real-time problem solving.
Maintaining a link with industry is important to both your learning and departmental growth. All ME seniors complete a capstone design project, performed over two consecutive semesters, sponsored by a variety of industrial partners. You can also take advantage of our internship program, through which you receive credit toward graduation by completing a one-semester internship under the supervision of an engineer in a related industry.
