BS in Mechanical Engineering – Internal Combustion Engines Concentration

Objective

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers program leading to BS degree in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) with an Internal Combustion Engines Concentration. This program is designed to acquaint the mechanical engineering student with the fundamental science and engineering underlying the design of both conventional and high performance internal combustion engines and the fundamentals of emission formation in combustion systems, automobile mechanisms and structures including vibrations and noise. Included are studies of conventional fuels and synthetic fuels of the future such as hydrogen and methanol. The BSME – Internal Combustion Engines Concentration program is accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET).

The objectives of the BSME – Internal Combustion Engines Concentration program is to prepare graduates who, within the first four to six years after graduation are, either:

  • Working as a professional or as an entrepreneur in an area closely related to mechanical engineering, aerospace, automobile, or
  • Exhibit lifelong learning by pursuing or having completed a graduate or professional degree and/or demonstrated professional development

 

Curriculum

Students enrolled in BSME – Internal Combustion Engines Concentration program are required to complete 126 course credits.
