Mechanical Engineering is the study of the principles of physics for the purpose of harnessing energy for human consumption. This program provides students with the knowledge to conduct the analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. Students will develop a solid understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and energy and their applications to automotive processes. Mechanical Engineering Technologists use the core principles as well as specialized knowledge in the field to design and analyze motor vehicles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems, watercraft, manufacturing plants, industrial machinery, and automation.
