The mission of the mechanical engineering program at Syracuse University is to educate and promote learning and discovery in mechanical engineering and to prepare students for careers of technical excellence, professional growth, and leadership in a complex and competitive technological environment. The educational objectives of the mechanical engineering curriculum are to enable graduates of the program to do the following: - apply the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences to professional practice or to advanced study in mechanical engineering or related fields; - be cognizant of societal context and ethical responsibility in professional practice; - function productively on teams and communicate ideas to both technical and non-technical audiences; and - be agile, innovative, and adaptable in an increasingly diverse and global environment Mechanical engineering is a broad discipline concerned with the design and analysis of systems that produce or modify motion, force, and energy into forms useful to people. Mechanical engineers are employed throughout the complete spectrum of industries, including automotive, industrial machinery, publishing and printing, electrical and thermal power, chemical processing, textile, petroleum, computer and electronic, pharmaceutical, apparel, consumer products, soap and cosmetics, paper and wood products, rubber, and glass. Driven by the breadth of career paths open to mechanical engineering graduates, the B.S. program in mechanical engineering (MEE) is structured to provide a firm educational foundation in the physical, mathematical, and engineering principles and design practices relevant to mechanical and thermal systems. The program is designed to prepare graduates for either immediate employment or for continuing studies at the graduate level. Student Outcomes: - an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering - an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data - an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs including both thermal and mechanical systems - 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
