Mechanical engineers have played a central role in the technological development of Western civilization by creating and improving a wide variety of machines and systems used by industry and the general public. These professionals combine theory and practice to design and fabricate mechanical and thermal equipment such as tools, engines and machines.
TU’s bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering offers hands-on classroom experiences and interactive research opportunities to help students compete in a global marketplace. Small class sizes encourage interaction among peers and faculty. The program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
Students complete courses rooted in mathematical and scientific basics before advancing to theoretical work and laboratory experiments in their final semesters. Creativity is fostered through innovative design projects where seniors work together in small teams to design and build products for local industry and community service initiatives.
Students are encouraged to compete in regional and national engineering competitions with projects centered on their research or design work. Many students participate in valuable internships with well-respected engineering firms to prepare for challenging and fulfilling professional roles or graduate programs.
