Step Up to the Cutting Edge


Seattle University’s Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering provides you a strong foundation in areas of mathematics, basic sciences, engineering theory and practice as well as the humanities and social sciences. The skills you learn in the classroom are enhanced in our well-equipped instructional laboratories and machine shop. Unlike other institutions, we provide a low student-to-faculty ratio that allows you to work closely with your professors. We offer direct admission to our BSME program. Our Industry Advisory Board of experts from the region helped to shape our rigorous curriculum so that you can be prepared for employment or the challenge of graduate studies.

Located in one of the nation’s fastest growing technology and engineering hubs, you will be encouraged to explore educational opportunities by participating in undergraduate research—on campus or at other institutions, industry internships, study abroad and various engineering club activities. And, your educational experience is enhanced by a year-long capstone senior design project sponsored by companies and organizations in which your small group will work together to address an engineering task with real-world issues and concerns.
