School of Science & Engineering
The mechanical engineering major at Anderson University teaches the principles and skills necessary to understand how heat and mechanical power can be used in the design and operation of machines and other tools. Graduates of our program develop skills that can be transferred to other areas such as chemical engineering and materials science.
Graduates of this program will be given a solid background in the theoretical and applied study of mechanical engineering, having been exposed to various techniques and instrumentation. Students will also have the opportunity to expand their creative abilities through design courses that challenge them to engineer products with cost and resources in mind. Whether the product is to be deployed in rural Africa, or is being developed by a small start-up firm, materials and cost are becoming increasingly important. The ability of engineers to “be creative with less” is more essential than ever.
- Graduate with a BS in Mechanical Engineering in four years.
- Complete the 4+1 program, from BS to MBA.
AU has the same professional accreditation as Big 10, public universities. Sought worldwide, ABET’s voluntary peer-review accreditation process is highly respected because it adds critical value to academic programs in the technical disciplines. ABET accrediation is awarded to engineering programs where quality, precision, and safety are of the utmost importance.
