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
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
At the time of graduation, students from our mechanical engineering program are expected to have
(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering,
(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data,
(c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability,
(d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams,
(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems,
(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility,
(g) an ability to communicate effectively,
(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context,
(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning,
(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues, and
(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
The program enrolled 128 students in Fall 2013 and awarded 22 degrees in academic year 2012-13.
The mechanical engineering program at Seattle University is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
