One of the fundamental—and most diverse—engineering disciplines, mechanical engineering equips you to make a difference on the smallest micro-scale level, as well as in large, complex systems. Each day, mechanical engineering principles are used in the conception, design, development, and manufacture of almost every product or process known to man.
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.
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
As a graduate of the mechanical engineering program, you will:
meet or exceed the expectations of your employer
pursue advanced study if desired
assume leadership roles in your profession and/or community
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 within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
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
a 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
As a graduate of the BSME program, you will be prepared to work in a variety of diverse fields, including:
Propulsion and power generation
Testing and field engineering
Technical sales and marketing
New product research and development
Consulting and forensic engineering
Design and process engineering
Manufacturing and applications engineering
Engineering project and program management
Technical executives and chief technology officers
New business entrepreneurs
Science is what is. Engineering is what will be. Become an engineer and create the future.
