Why Mechanical Engineering at UCI?
The undergraduate Mechanical Engineering curriculum includes a foundation of mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Engineering courses in fundamental areas constitute much of the remaining curriculum. A few technical electives allow the undergraduate student to specialise somewhat or to pursue broader understanding. A senior capstone design experience culminates the curriculum.
Program Educational Objectives: graduates of the program will have the professional and scientific education that allows them to be successful as career engineers and in the most demanding graduate programs.
Specifically, they will be able to -
- Function in professional environments in industry, government, and academia applying and building upon engineering science knowledge, problem-solving skills, and communication skills;
- Function as members of teams and in leadership roles applying ethical standards including the ASME code of ethics within and beyond traditional Mechanical Engineering disciplines;
- remain current with technology and contemporary scientific and societal issues, and consequently improve skills and knowledge through a lifelong process of learning.
