Curriculum

<< Back to Mechanical Engineering homepage

The curriculum stresses fundamentals of engineering science and analysis and the development of creative thinking in the application of the principles of engineering design.  Laboratory work is concerned with experimental procedures in the field of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer. Emphasis is given to technical reports and to their content, form, and presentation.  Increasing emphasis is placed on computer application at all levels.
