The Program of Mechanical Engineering at Midwestern State University offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Mechanical engineers use concepts of mechanics and heat to design and build machines, devices and systems such as internal combustion and jet engines, thermal fluid systems such as those used in power plants, and highly complex artificial hearts. Mechanical engineers are responsible for the design and development of an incredible range of systems and products, including power plants, engines, automobiles, rockets, airplanes, robots, tools, and household appliances. Their creations are dynamic, involving motion, in contrast to the static creations of most other engineers. Mechanical engineering is considered to be the broadest branch of engineering, providing a wide choice of careers and allowing movement into a variety of engineering and non-engineering areas. Mechanical Engineering students at MSU receive a broad education which allows them to pursue successful careers along diverse paths and to find employment in a broad range of industries, including automotive, space, transportation, computer, construction, heating and cooling, and power generation. Students learn how to become problem solvers, how to work in a team, and most of all, how to become self-learners. The standards in the Mechanical Engineering program are high. The student needs to negotiate a curriculum that is very rigorous, but the rewards are abundant and very satisfying.
The mission of the mechanical engineering program is to provide each graduate with a foundation of knowledge and training upon which to build a successful career in mechanical engineering or related fields. Graduates of the program are well grounded in scientific, mathematical, and mechanical engineering knowledge through curricular activities that reflect technological advances. This is achieved by honing their ability to analyze, synthesize, and design mechanical engineering systems, communicate information, and understand and appreciate the need for life-long learning.
