    Our Mission

    The mission of the mechanical engineering program at Seattle University isto provide educational opportunities for students seeking to enter the mechanical engineering profession, so that they can achieve competence in the field while recognizing their social responsibilities. The program provides a strong foundation in the areas of mathematics, basic sciences, engineering theory and practice, and the humanities and social sciences. It encourages further self-development and life-long intellectual achievement through personal reflection. Additionally, the program seeks to build student skills in written and oral communication, socially, economically and environmentally responsible decision making, and professionalism.
