Mechanical Engineering

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) degree is an IUPUI program that grants a Purdue University degree. All courses required for this degree can be completed on the IUPUC campus.

As a mechanical engineering student in the IUPUI program, you will benefit from all of the facilities and services of the program. These facilities and services are available on the IUPUC campus:

  • State-of-the art classrooms, engineering software, experimental laboratories and facilities in the Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AMCE)
  • Access to a unique precision measurement and metrology laboratory
  • A high-performance computational analysis simulation and engineering laboratory (CASEL) that is integrated into the engineering curriculum for undergraduate research and design courses
  • Outstanding faculty with PhDs and significant industry experience in addition to academic advisors who are committed to knowing you personally and helping you achieve your academic goals
  • Assistance with networking, paid internships, and job placement through our close relationships with regional engineering companies and partners
  • Several engineering scholarships are available to support engineering students pursuing their undergraduate degrees
  • A small, beautiful campus with small class sizes dedicated to your personal attention, education, and progress through graduation
