Programs of Study

Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.  Mechanical engineers have the skills to design and analyze complex mechanical and thermal systems.  Topics that a student will study include solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, materials science, thermodynamics, and controls. The department of Mechanical Engineering offers a baccalaureate degree in Mechanical Engineering and master’s and doctoral degrees in mechanical engineering.

Undergraduate Degree

A bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering gives the student the ability to apply the principles and techniques of math and science to the solution of practical problems in mechanical and thermal science and design.  The bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Graduate Degrees

Graduate study in the department of mechanical engineering leads to either a Master's or Doctoral degree.  Students will develop high levels of competency in mechanical engineering and will typically specialize in one of the focus areas.  The ME department at TU has strong research programs in solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, materials science, controls, and cyber-physical systems.
