Mechanical Engineering

Degree course requirements include Advanced Mechanics of Materials, Control of Dynamics Systems, and Mechanical Behavior of Materials as well as a limited number of addition courses in science, mathematics, or engineering. Another requirement is the Computational Core. The courses within it develop competency in data structures and algorithms, simulation of physical and engineering systems, optimization, high performance computing, and numerical methods. We offer a research-based thesis option and a project-based non-thesis option.
