The undergraduate curriculum in mechanical engineering incorporates math, physics and chemistry, humanities/social sciences, business, engineering, electrical theory, measurement science, mechanical engineering core courses (computer aided drafting, dynamics and controls, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, materials science, and heat and mass transfer), and selected technical elective courses. These electives are designed to meet the needs of the industrial, commercial, governmental, and military communities, and to serve students' professional objectives.
Undergraduate students also have many opportunities to become involved in discipline related activities outside the classroom. The MAE Department has active chapters in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
