Sometimes it takes a while to find your place in the world. Jerod Day loves school, but when he first started studying engineering at another university, he was disappointed with the impersonal faculty and the lack of research options for undergraduate students. After transferring to UNT, he found Mechanical and Energy Engineering the perfect fit for pursuing his passion for thermodynamics as well as the “green” aspects of engineering.
|The mechanical and energy engineering undergraduate program is an ABET accredited program and allows future engineers to gain in-dept knowledge about the mechanical engineering and energy studies from reowned experts. Students perform cutting-edge student research in exceptional facilities and work with industry leaders on real-world projects. The department offers enriching activities beyond the classroom as well, including student organizations and competitions that allow students to stretch their creativity and skills while having fun with friends.|
UNT's Mechanical and Energy Engineering program is similar to a traditional Mechanical Engineering curriculum, however UNT's curriculum focuses on several energy related courses that target natural energy applications and materials.
The Mechanical and Energy Engineering department offers class sizes averaging 50 students, with labs ranging between 15 to 20 students. This allows students to have a more personal working relationship with faculty and classmates with opportunities for collaboration.
Within their first year, students take basic fundamental courses in Math and Science. These courses will lay the foundation for the advanced level classes of the students’ choice. Students will focus on the following areas of study:
In their final year, seniors will participate in a Capstone Senior Design project that allows them to solve real-world issues, making meaningful contributions to an existing local business. The mechanical and energy engineering program also teaches students to be responsible industry leaders by giving them a global understanding of the environmental, ethical and societal impacts of the technologies they help develop.
