Why Mechanical Engineering at SUNY Binghamton?
Mechanical Engineering (ME) plays a role in nearly everything that is made by humans.
From design, to fabrication to final applications — the University touches everything. Because of this, the ME curriculum offers a balance among theory, design and laboratory experience in the areas of thermal fluids, mechanics, dynamic systems, design and materials — all to help students develop into leaders in the field.
The curriculum has been designed to provide strong technical preparation in mechanical engineering.
The primary goal is to prepare graduates for professional practice in mechanical engineering or continued study at the graduate level, based on a thorough grounding in the fundamentals and skills used by the mechanical engineer.
The Bachelor’s Program in Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Graduates from our program, within the first few years of their career, will either achieve professional employment in the broad field of mechanical engineering or related disciplines, or enroll in programs of advanced study in engineering, science and other professions, including business and law.
The program emphasizes the application of engineering fundamentals rather than specialization within areas of mechanical engineering. However, some specialization is permitted through elective courses. Care has been taken to ensure a balanced integration of theory, design and laboratory practice through the selection and sequencing of courses within the curriculum.
The primary goal is to prepare the mechanical engineering bachelor of science graduate for a creative, lifelong engineering career. Combined degrees and minor programs are available.
The curriculum has been designed to provide strong technical preparation in the broad field of mechanical engineering.
Areas of Research Conducted by the Faculty - Applied Mechanics and Design, Dynamic Systems and Acoustics, Energy, and Materials, Transport.
