Mechanical Engineering Mission
The Mechanical Engineering Department strives to maintain faculty, curriculum, and supporting facilities that facilitate excellence in undergraduate teaching. The Mechanical Engineering program supports the Academy's mission by providing midshipmen with a broad education in mechanical engineering subjects and a knowledge of fundamental engineering principles that enhance their ability to understand and design naval systems and to supervise the operation of these systems. The program instills in its graduates a desire to maintain high ethical and professional standards and prepares them for continued success in naval service, professional training programs, graduate studies, and/or engineering careers.
The Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
