Future Undergraduate Students
What will I learn here?
UNT's Mechanical and Energy Engineering program is similar to a traditional Mechanical Engineering curriculum, however, UNT's curriculum focuses on 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 from 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:
- Thermal science, fluid flow, and energy
- Mechanics and materials
- Dynamics, design, and controls
- Environmental impact of energy production and use
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.
