Undergraduate Programs

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering program offered by the SDSU Department of Mechanical Engineering is a rigorous blend of theory with practical engineering fundamentals. The program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Mechanical engineering covers the design and analysis of all kinds of systems and technologies with mechanical components, with applications in energy production, robotics, environmental systems, materials, composites, transportation, manufacturing, machine design, and many more areas. The SDSU Department of Mechanical Engineering provides a broad based education to prepare the student for a wide range of careers and new technologies. One important fact which surprises many people, is that students get engineering degrees not only to practice careers in engineering, but also as preliminary training for many other fields or graduate work in engineering, law, medicine, and business. ME graduates can work in all of these areas.

In mechanical engineering, our students are bright and successful. They have done very well in national competitions such as the Mini Baja and SAE Formula competitions sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers. Our graduates are in high demand for mechanical engineering positions in San Diego and across the nation.
