Program Description:

The Mechanical Engineering Minor prepares the General Engineer for a career or graduate school in areas more closely related to a traditional Mechanical Engineering major. Here the student will receive preparation and exposure to advanced topics in heat transfer and fluid mechanics, machine component design, and control theory. Students will gain experience in industry-standard finite-element and finite-volume computational methods used to simulate the behavior of structures and materials. 

Total Credits Required:
