The mechanical engineering program at Seattle University provides students with a strong foundation in both the technical and communication skills needed for the profession. The rigorous curriculum prepares students for employment or the challenge of graduate studies. The mechanical engineering faculty members, each with unique talents and technical specialties, are committed to fostering a learning environment focused on each student's distinctive interests and skills.
The principles learned in the 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 undergraduate research (both on campus or at other institutions), industry internships, study abroad, and various engineering club activities. The educational experience is enhanced by a year-long capstone senior design project in which small groups of students work on engineering projects sponsored by companies and organizations.
The program strives to provide a personalized, world-class educational experience, in keeping with Seattle University's Mission,that enables graduates to:
Professional: attain a position in mechanical engineering or related field,
Personal: participate in ongoing personal and professional growth and learning as demonstrated by completion of advanced degrees or through other forms of continuing education, and
Societal: contribute to society or the profession through involvement in professional organizations or other service activity.
