About the Mechanical Engineering Program

The mechanical engineering (ME) program provides a quality, well-rounded education that is based on imparting fundamental knowledge and skills in mathematics and pure science as well as engineering science and design.

ME graduates are uniquely suited to jobs in all traditional areas of mechanical engineering including mechanics, machine design, energy systems, fluid flow, heat transfer and thermodynamics. To ensure this, all students take the same fundamental courses, but then choose a series of technical electives geared towards their own interests or career objectives. Additional experience is gained through student design projects and voluntary participation in student clubs, honor societies, and design competitions.

Mission Statement

Provide a quality, well-rounded education that is based on imparting fundamental knowledge and skills in mathematics and pure sciences as well as engineering science and design, and to prepare graduates who will be effective contributors to the mechanical engineering profession soon after their graduation.

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)

ASME helps the global engineering community develop solutions to real world challenges. Founded in 1880 as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, ASME is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines, while promoting the vital role of the engineer in society. ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world.

Notice to Students: Professional Licensure and Certification

California State University programs for professions that require licensure or certification are intended to prepare the student for California licensure and certification requirements. Admission into programs for professions that require licensure and certification does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or certificate. Licensure and certification requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the California State University and licensure and certification requirements can change at any time.

The California State University has not determined whether its programs meet other states' educational or professional requirements for licensure and certification. Students planning to pursue licensure or certification in other states are responsible for determining whether, if they complete a California State University program, they will meet their state's requirements for licensure or certification. This disclosure is made pursuant to 34 CFR §668.43(a)(5)(v)(C).
