Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, BSE
Mechanical Engineering & Applied Mechanics (MEAM) is the study of forces, deformations and motions of solid bodies and fluids, heat generation and transport, and applications to analysis, design, and manufacture of components, machines, and systems. Students in mechanical engineering follow a program which contains basic groundwork in all aspects of mechanical engineering, but flexibility in the curriculum allows students to pursue elective programs in fields such as aeronautics, robotics, computers, electronics, automatic controls, and materials.
