Laser Doppler Velocimiter (LDV)

Mechanical Engineering is the broadest branch of engineering providing graduates the ability to pursue many varied career paths. It encompasses a wide variety of specialties including alternative energy, mechanical design, thermal/fluids/heat transfer, and mechatronics to name a few.


Degree Offered

Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering

Location

Klamath Falls

Student Preparation

Students planning to enter the Mechanical Engineering curriculum should undertake Mathematics/science training in high school. Such courses as algebra, trigonometry, calculus, physics, chemistry, drafting, CAD, writing, speech, and shop classes will prove beneficial.

Cooperative Field Experience

There is an opportunity for students in the bachelor of science degree program to work in industry for a specified time and receive college credit. Those interested in such an opportunity are encouraged to work out the details with the Mechanical Engineering Program Director. Mechanical Engineering students have the opportunity to participate in the state-wide MECOP internship program.

Degree Requirements

In the curriculum listings appear several courses titled "MECH Elective." MECH electives allow you to select and pursue specific career objectives within the mechanical engineering field. MECH electives are upper-division MECH courses, not specifically required for graduation.

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering requires 192 credit hours as prescribed in the curriculum map.
