BS in Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineers in industry must be able to interact with many engineering disciplines, so they are required to take courses in other engineering disciplines. Also, because mechanical engineers design and manufacture components and systems, they are required to take courses that emphasize the engineering design/definition process. The mechanical engineering graduate engineer should be well equipped to undertake a professional engineering career in any technology that he or she chooses.
The mechanical engineering program at New Mexico Tech offers the students hands‐on laboratory experience in fluid and thermal sciences, mechanics of materials, vibrations, mechatronics, dynamic systems and controls, instrumentation, and measurement. Junior and senior mechanical engineering students work on design projects for two years that range from the Baja SAE® vehicles to aerospace aircraft design.
