The Mechanical Engineering Program is an academic transfer program designed to provide students typical coursework for the
first two years of a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. Courses in math, physics, natural sciences, and engineering
sciences are emphasized. Students finish their general education core requirements at the transfer institution.
Mechanical engineers design and develop all types of machines. Many mechanical engineers work in the transportation industry and are involved in the design of aircraft, spacecraft, automobiles, trucks, bicycles and propulsion systems. Others are an integral part of the manufacturing industry, designing consumer products and the machinery and processes to produce them. Robotics, power generation and air conditioning are principally mechanical engineering topics.
Completion of the following courses is designed to result in an associate’s degree in engineering and does not meet the general education requirements at all Idaho public universities. Course selection should be coordinated to meet the requirements for your intended transfer institution.
