     MSGP Professional Track

     

    The objective of the professional track is to present an academic program combined with application training on actual industrial problems to give students a targeted education, complemented by hands-on, real-world development exposure. Students are selected for this track based on academic background, leadership skills, and communications skills. The student is assigned a Gannon professor as a mentor while working at the industrial site. The mentor advises the student on his academic work and guides the student on industrial engineering projects. The projects are carefully chosen to reinforce classroom work and to develop students into outstanding engineers. In addition to the mentorship in technical areas, the professor also mentors the student in leadership skills, work and personal ethics, and communication skills that are needed in the industrial workplace. The student is also assigned an engineering mentor from the industrial sponsor. This track requires that the student work on these projects half-time during the school year and full-time during the summer. The number of students in this track is dependent on availability of industrial sponsorship The curriculum and internship training for Mechanical Engineering with professional track is as follows:
