Engineering Updates for COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, effective March 20, 2020, classes and most services are remote/virtual for the remainder of the spring semester. Our department continues to offer services through online and remote methods for the health and safety of our campus. For the latest engineering updates and resources, please visit the engineering updates on COVID-19 page. This page will be regularly updated, and major changes to the operation of the college will be communicated both on this page and via email.

Our department office and all engineering buildings are closed until further notice.

For questions and/or concerns:

  • For department or program questions, contact your program department office directly via email.
  • For general College of Engineering questions, contact engineering@cpp.edu.

The Mechanical Engineering 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.See our brochure

American Society of Mechanical Engineers


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.

Mission Statement

The Mechanical Engineering program's mission is to 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 within a short time after their graduation.
