Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering modelsDepartment of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is the broadest of all engineering disciplines. It deals with diverse engineering problems in solid mechanics, fluid dynamics and aerodynamics, heat transfer, energy conversion, vibration, design, manufacturing, controls, materials science, and electromechanical systems, among others. Mechanical engineers are employed in almost every industry. If there are moving parts or if energy is converted from one form to another, a mechanical engineer was responsible for the design. Students receive a hands-on education with small ME class sizes averaging 28 students per lecture class and 10 students per laboratory section.

 


Mission Statement

The Mechanical Engineering department seeks to be a nationally recognized top-tier mechanical engineering department that provides excellent opportunities for students to learn from exceptional educators and researchers, significant world-class research, services to our community and state, and an environment of engagement, diligence, creativity, and excellence.

ABET Accreditation

All engineering programs in the USA are accredited by the same agency, the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Further ABET information is available here. The mechanical engineering curriculum at the University of Wyoming has been continuously accredited by ABET since 1941. The Energy Systems Engineering degree program, launched in 2009, was first accredited by ABET in 2012 with retroactive application to all earlier graduates. Maintaining accreditation is one of the highest priorities of our Mechanical Engineering faculty. Program strength can also be inferred by examining student performance on the NCEES Fundamentals of Engineering exam, which is the first step to professional licensure. Over the past decade (through May 2016), the pass rate for UW’s ME students taking the NCEES FE exam has been 92 percent, which is 10 percentage points above the national average for mechanical engineers. Over the past UW’s ESE students have a pass rate of 93 percent.
