Bachelor of science in mechanical engineering

Courses Degree requirements

Mechanical engineers work with motion, energy and forces, and are involved in manufacturing the products they design. As the backbone of the engineering profession, they work in every industry—from transportation, communications and electronics to bioengineering, commerce and manufacturing—in business, government and universities.

At WSU Vancouver, you will learn basic principles and their use in solving engineering problems. You will take courses focused on design, manufacturing, robotics, computer-aided engineering, thermal and fluid systems, mechanics of materials, micro and nano electronic devices, and machine integration and control. The curriculum incorporates hands-on experiences through laboratory work and design projects.

  1. Mechanical, thermal and energy systems
  2. Computer-aided design and engineering
  3. Machine control and robotics
  4. Micro and nano electronic devices 
  5. Manufacturing
