Undergraduate Program Overview
The Mechanical Engineering undergraduate curriculum leads to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology defines mechanical engineering as "the profession in which a knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences gained by study, experience, and practice is applied with judgment to develop ways to use economically the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind." Clearly, from this definition, engineers are to form the interface between sciences and society as they apply, in realistic terms, the findings of science.
