The ABET accredited program prepares students for a career in mechanical engineering or advanced studies in one of its specialties or related fields. Mechanical engineering graduates have also gone on to pursue careers in business, law, and medicine.
Engineering project-based learning, built on a solid foundation of engineering science and mathematics, is emphasized throughout the curriculum. Principles learned in classroom are explored in greater depth in one of our well-equipped instructional laboratories and machine shop. During their time at Seattle University, students are encouraged to explore educational opportunities by participating in engineering competitions sponsored by ASME, undergraduate research (both on campus or at other institutions), industry internships, study abroad, and various engineering club activities to compliment classroom learning.
The educational experience is further enhanced by a year-long capstone senior design project in which small groups of students work on engineering projects sponsored by companies and organizations. 2008 ME projects include developing a home energy saving kit (Puget Sound Energy), truck exhaust heat harvesting system (Kenworth Trucks), automatic baggage stowage bin lift-assist mechanism (Boeing Commercial Airplanes), and ASME student design competition Winrobo - an autonomous window washing robot, which won 1st place in District-D competition.
The mechanical engineering curriculum at Seattle University is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in both technical and communication skills needed for success in the profession. The rigorous curriculum not only prepares students for employment upon graduation, it also prepares them for the challenge of graduate studies. The faculty members in the department, each with unique talent and technical specialty, are dedicated to serve the student’s need and are committed to foster a learning environment where student welfare is the central focus.
The educational goals for the students are embodied in the department mission and education objectives.The mechanical engineering program is accredited by the
Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
