Mechanical engineering is a diverse subject that derives its breadth from the need to design and manufacture everything from small individual parts and devices (e.g., microscale sensors and inkjet printer nozzles) to large systems (e.g., spacecraft and machine tools). The role of a mechanical engineer is to take a product from an idea to the marketplace. So the educational objective of the Mechanical Engineering department is to produce the engineers who have:
A well-built foundation of mathematical, scientific and mechanical engineering knowledge and are equipped with problem solving and design, teamwork, and communication skills that will serve them throughout their careers.
The ability to work professionally in design, thermal and production areas .
Havethe ability to successfully pursue advanced studies in mechanical engineering; in related technical areas and in other professional fields .
The ability to successfully pursue careers as practicing mechanical engineers in manufacturing industries, energy and utility companies, and engineering consulting firms .
Have the ability to master professional leadership roles.
