School of Engineering & TechnologyMechanical Engineering
Our students immerse themselves into this design-based focus while taking core engineering courses to reinforce fundamental engineering concepts necessary to develop feasible, sustainable, and eco-friendly solutions to real problems.
The entire curriculum encourages each student to fulfill their potential by engaging them in experiences where they “learn and apply” and “design and build.” This contrasts with most traditional engineering programs in which students spend their semesters taking math and science prerequisites before they are challenged with real engineering problems. All JU engineering students will graduate with a 6 Sigma Yellow Belt Certificate.
Possibilities are Endless
Mechanical engineers make a difference by creating products and technologies that meet human needs and improve their lives. By designing almost every product or service of the modern world, mechanical engineers have helped humankind.
JU’s fundamental yet comprehensive Mechanical Engineering degree is the gateway to developing solutions for climate change, world hunger, health care, energy, transportation. JU Engineering students have participated in internships with Johnson and Johnson Vision, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority, JEA, CSX, the US Department of Energy and the US Army Corps of Engineers, National Science Foundation (NSF), and Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU).
