Admissions - Undergraduate
UD Department of Mechanical Engineering has developed an undergraduate program that is both intellectually challenging and broad in scope. Our undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, and is flexible and responsive to students' needs. The objective of the undergraduate Mechanical Engineering Program at the University of Delaware is to produce graduates with a strong foundation in engineering fundamentals enabling them to lead a successful careers in industry or government and/or obtain an advanced degree, and contribute to engineering knowledge, the profession, and the community.
Mechanical engineering is the broadest of the engineering disciplines giving students a wide range of opportunities; its strong technical foundation makes available opportunities in both practice and research as well as non-engineering fields such as business, law or medicine. Our curriculum was designed for flexibility and responsiveness to the rapidly changing technical and business environment. Undergraduate students are encouraged to work directly with faculty in state-of-the-art research projects. In Senior Design, students work in groups of four with local company sponsors to solve real-world design challenges.
The main ingredient in our high quality program is our excellent faculty. They all hold the degree of Ph.D., and come from a diverse set of quality institutions and are internationally-recognized for their scholarly research. Also, professors teach all undergraduate ME courses at Delaware, not graduate assistants.
Our graduates are prepared to face the challenges they will encounter — no matter what path they choose.
