Mechanical Engineering is the broadest discipline in engineering and uses a combination of human, material and economic resources to provide solutions to problems faced in society. As an applied science, Mechanical Engineering is focused on the design, development, manufacture, management and control of engineering systems.
At St. Ambrose, our emphasis is on the people and designing and adapting environments to best suit personal needs, such as planning efficient heating and cooling systems for new facilities or developing equipment to help the disabled become more self-sufficient.
The mission of the Mechanical Engineering program is to develop graduates who analyze, design, communicate, and integrate humans in thermal and mechanical engineering solutions.
The St. Ambrose Mechanical Engineering Program is not yet accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET). Once we have our first graduate of the program, we will begin the accreditation process. Accreditation will be retroactive for graduates of the program under which Mechanical Engineering is evaluated by ABET.
