Mechanical Engineering Concentration

NNU’s Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree is an ABET-accredited, multidisciplinary degree dedicating two years to broad engineering fundamentals and two years to your Mechanical Engineering concentration.
The mechanical engineering concentration is focused on machinery, thermal energy and heat flow, design of automation and robotics, aerodynamics and aerospace. Mechanical engineers are involved with the design and development of equipment and processes for all sectors of society, including renewable and alternative energy systems, propulsion systems, materials handling, industrial robots, biomedical prosthetics, etc. Specialty areas within this concentration include energy conversion, solid mechanics, dynamic systems and manufacturing processes.
For this degree, you will take courses in machine design, vibrations, fluid mechanics, mechatronics, and fluid and heat transfer as well as complete a senior research project tailored toward this area of study. This coursework complements the ongoing department research projects, giving you opportunities to gain hands-on experience.
Besides access to cutting-edge research, you will have professors with years of industry experience to draw on in mentoring you and giving you hands-on training with fabrication and lab equipment. With a 15:1 student to faculty ratio, you get to know your professor and your professors really care about you, both in and out of the classroom. At the same time, you benefit from NNU’s broad liberal arts educational, spiritual and residential campus experience.

Outcomes

SPOTLIGHT

The professors are willing to work with you one on one, which I think is something that not a lot of other schools can say. They push you and care about you personally and academically. I've been able to develop a lot of healthy relationships with my professors as they've been able to guide me through life.
