Welcome To Mechanical Engineering
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 Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/.
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 assistants.
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 involved.
