Mechanical Engineering

A degree in mechanical engineering opens up opportunity in many different industries. Mechanical engineers are skilled in physical mechanics such as propulsion, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, and strength of materials.

At JBU, you will earn a strong background in robotics, machine design, 3D computer-aided drafting and computational modeling. But your JBU education goes far beyond the fundamentals. Here, students are challenged to solve real-world problems with innovative solutions from their first semester. Become immersed in the full design process, starting with brainstorming ideas, refining design, fabrication and troubleshooting, final testing, and ultimately presenting a final product unique to you and your inventiveness. This type of creative design space is the environment in which engineers thrive.

Accreditation & Enrollment Data

The legacy B.S. Engineering degree (not available for new student enrollment) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

JBU will be seeking ABET accreditation for the new B.S. Electrical Engineering and B.S. Mechanical Engineering degrees at the earliest possible date after our first class of B.S.E.E. and B.S.M.E. students graduate (anticipated in May of 2020).
