The Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
In order to prepare the mechanical engineers of the future to take their places in this profession and to be fully consistent with the published University and College Mission Statements, the UD Department of Mechanical Engineering has developed an undergraduate program that is both intellectually challenging and broad in scope.
The objective of the undergraduate Mechanical Engineering Program at the University of Delaware is to produce graduates with a strong foundation in engineering fundamentals enabling them to:
- lead a successful career in industry or government and/or obtain an advanced degree, and
- contribute to engineering knowledge, the profession, and the community.
NOTE: elements to be considered when assessing contributions will include items such as: advancement within an organization, teaching (for example, classes, short courses, continuing education, etc.), publishing papers or technical reports, applying for patents, delivering conference presentations, authoring other technical publications, progress towards professional registration, and active involvement with professional organizations.
