Our Vision & Mission

The vision for the BSME program offered at IUPUC is to educate engineers to be technically proficient, professional in practice, and well rounded, with the skills and abilities to become innovative leaders and entrepreneurs. Graduates are prepared to think creatively and communicate efficiently in economic, social, political, and ethical contexts.

Our mission is to deliver an outstanding undergraduate mechanical engineering program for students throughout southeastern Indiana. The program will prepare students for entry into the engineering profession and a path toward professional licensure. It will also prepare students for graduate study in master’s and Ph.D. engineering programs. It will provide students with a broad technology, science, and liberal arts background coupled with a strong foundation in engineering theory, concepts, and practical applications.
