Mechanical Engineering Department

The Mechanical Engineering department offers students a nationally renowned, ABET accredited, program based on Cal Poly, Pomona's "learn by doing" approach to education. Our priority is teaching undergraduate students. Class size is limited to 30 students with faculty, not teaching assistants, teaching all courses. The faculty bring into the classroom their own industrial experience which provides students with a realistic perspective and understanding of the engineering world. Laboratories are also taught by faculty and geared towards experience in the types of analysis used in real engineering applications. Illustration of the concepts learned in the classroom and familiarization with actual mechanical hardware are also emphasized.
