The undergraduate curriculum includes engineering science courses in the sophomore and junior years and engineering application courses in the junior and senior years. Laboratory courses and humanities and social science electives are found throughout the curriculum. The laboratory and application courses provide opportunity for development of student creativity, use of design methodology and other aspects of engineering design.
The entire curriculum serves as preparation for the industrial design project where teams of students are assigned to work on realistic engineering problems supplied by industrial sponsors. This brief internship gives new mechanical engineering graduates the experience and confidence to move quickly into productive and satisfying careers.
Because of the broad and fundamental nature of the curriculum, mechanical engineering provides an excellent background for careers in such fields as law, medicine, social services, urban design and business management in addition to traditional engineering professions.
Schedule an on campus visit through K-State's Admissions office or by calling 800-532-8270. If you go through admissions, be sure to tell them you want to visit the Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Engineering department. Also, check out the College of Engineering's special events for prospective students.
Students must complete 127 hours of a presubscribed curriculum to graduate with their bachelor of science in mechanical engineering, or mechanical engineering with a nuclear option.
