MECHANICAL ENGINEERING MAHESH C. AGGARWAL, Ph.D., Chairperson FACULTY: Professors: Mahesh C. Aggarwal, Michael J. Panza, Hamid Torab, Karinna Vernaza. Associate Professor: Scott E. Steinbrink. Assistant Professor: David Gee, Mahoobe Mahdavi, Robert J. Michael. Lecturer: Michael Sirak. Overview and Objectives The overall goal of the Mechanical Engineering Program is to provide the student with a fundamental and application based education. This program is designed to prepare the student for employment in research, development, design and production in industry or government as well as to assure a high level of preparation for those students who continue to advanced studies. A part of this preparation is to recognize and respond to ethical and public issues, including safety, social and environmental concerns. To facilitate and support student development, the department has up-to-date laboratories for education and research, including strength of materials lab, fluid mechanics lab, manufacturing lab, heat transfer lab, automatic control lab, computer graphics and CAD lab. Two technicians and a machine shop support these labs. The ME Program maintains an up-to-date curriculum, has modern laboratories, well-qualified faculty and a strong academic and career advising system. Students have access to the University Center for Experiential Learning and to the Faculty. Program Educational Objectives (A) Demonstrate technical ability through application of analytical, experimental, and computer knowledge to physical systems, while engaging in careers in industry or government. (B) Demonstrate professional leadership gained from completing a rigorous engineering program and having opportunity for campus involvement, as evidenced by promotion and/or acceptance of increasing professional responsibilities. (C) Demonstrate commitment to the ideals of a values-centered education as global citizens through workplace conduct, and professional and community activities undertaken for the benefit of the human condition. (D) D emonstrate recognition of the value of lifelong learning through pursuit of continuing education while obtaining experience in their field of endeavor, workplace educational opportunities, or graduate studies related to engineering and management.
