An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility. An ability to communicate effectively. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context. Recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning. A knowledge of contemporary issues. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice. Degree Requirements for BA and BS in Mechanical Engineering The BS program prepares students for the professional practice of engineering. During their senior year, mechanical engineering students in the BS program take courses in design application while completing a major design project. The program's goals and objectives are available on the departmental website. For general university requirements, see Graduation Requirements. The BA program in mechanical engineering is highly flexible, involves less technical content than the BS, and allows students greater freedom to pursue areas of interest outside of engineering. The BA degree is not accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. For general university requirements, see Graduate Requirements. BS in Mechanical Engineering Program The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, External Link. Lists of representative undergraduate courses and the usual order in which they are taken are available from the department. The BSME degree contains a core of required courses and selected electives from one of five specialization areas. The requirements (for a total of 132 hours) are:
