Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers test the principles of physics and materials science to analyze, design, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems. Graduates help to power the world in industries such as aviation, energy conversion, environmental research, manufacturing automation and product testing.

Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME)

BSME degrees stand out in a competitive market. Graduates leave with a technical background but also are tuned into the business and strategic needs of industry and technology. UMKC students have a geographic edge because many part-time job opportunities are available in Kansas City for undergraduate students at local engineering firms. The BSME degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
