Department Objectives

The Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering offers three distinct undergraduate programs: BEng in Mechanical Engineering, BEng in Industrial Engineering and BEng in Aerospace Engineering.
Mechanical Engineering is concerned with all forms of power generation (hydro-electric, steam, internal combustion, nuclear, jet rocket, and fuel cells), the design of mechanisms and machines, transportation systems, controls and automation, vibration analysis, environmental control (heating, ventilation, and refrigeration), materials handling, and precision measurement. The Mechanical Engineering curriculum consists of a combination of core courses with a series of technical electives that allow students to obtain some specialization in a particular area of the field depending on their interests and expected future professional activity. Three options are available: Aerospace and Propulsion Engineering; Design and Manufacturing Engineering; and Systems and Mechatronics.
Industrial Engineering is concerned with the design, organization, analysis, and integration of people and industrial systems components in order to achieve or enhance effectiveness. These components include whole machines, transportation and conveyance elements, physical plant, organizational frameworks, schedules, and budgets. The Industrial Engineering curriculum is therefore designed to give students the background needed to define and solve problems related to the conception, improvement, integration, and implementation of industrial systems.
The Aerospace Engineering program is offered jointly with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The detailed description of this program can be found in §71.55.
