|Welcome to Mechanical Engineering
| College of Engineering and Applied Sciences
|The mechanical engineering program at Arkansas Tech University is designed to cultivate
opportunities for our graduates. We provide students with a strong background in mechanical
engineering that they can use to do great things.
|The faculty in mechanical engineering are highly qualified, experienced, and most
importantly dedicated to education. They are responsible for all the course content
and evaluation - very little if any grading(and no lecturing) is done by teaching
|Our graduates continue to graduate schools around the nation or work in manufacturing,
HVAC or other thermal-fluid related industries, power industries, consulting firms,
oil and gas industries, and other areas.
|The Mechanical Engineering Department is housed in the Corley Building and has up-to-date
lab equipment. Our classes are small with 30-35 students in most sections which allows
for more interaction between the professors and students.
|While our emphasis is on teaching, research is not forgotten and many of our faculty
are actively pursuing research interests with many possibilities for students to become

- To produce graduates who use the engineering skills and technical ability gained through
the program to embark upon successful careers in mechanical engineering.
- To produce graduates who engage in life-long learning.
- To produce graduates who employ engineering analysis, experimental methods, and design
techniques to solve engineering problems.
- To produce graduates who demonstrate skills pertinent to the design process including
the ability to formulate problems, to think creatively, to communicate effectively,
to synthesize information and to work collaboratively.
- To produce graduates who understand their professional and ethical responsibilities.
|In order to meet the mission and educational objectives of the program, the Mechanical
Engineering Department at Arkansas Tech University established the following list
of attributes as goals for its graduating students.
