Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is concerned with the design, development, manufacture, and use of mechanical devices and systems, from the small-scale applications of nanotechnology to the large-scale world of aircraft and power plants.

The four-year Mechanical Engineering curriculum includes a five-semester design sequence emphasizing hands-on design projects that requires students to work in teams. Students apply the theories they are taught in the classroom to solve open-ended problems.

The design sequence also provides students with systems integration exercises that incorporate such components such as vision systems, sensors, controls, and the software that ties them together. Potential project work may include unmanned flight applications, which could include aerospace, geographic and topographic exploration; atmospheric research and security, and the application of advanced technology to the design of robots; automated systems; and medical devices. The College has acquired an ABB six-axis industrial robot and COGNEX vision systems to facilitate this systems integration experience.

Students enrolled in the Mechanical Engineering program may take the following courses as their three technical electives: Aerodynamics, Flight Dynamics I (Performance), and Flight Dynamics II (Stability and Control). In this sequence of courses, students develop test plans and perform in-flight experiments using an aircraft quipped with a Calspan Miniature Flight Data Recording System (MFDRS). Students then analyze the data for comparison with theoretical predictions and published aircraft data.

The Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
