Welcome to Gannon’s Department of Mechanical Engineering

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Gannon University. The department offers several programs to enhance your industry and/or academic goals. The Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering is the traditional starting point to
an engineering career in the private or public sector. The undergraduate degree is also a powerful statement when applying for positions that do not include the word mechanical. If your interests include graduate studies, an undergraduate
degree in mechanical engineering, or similar program, is typically a prerequisite for the master’s degree in mechanical engineering. If your interests lie closer to technical management, check out our graduate program in engineering management.
Typically, an engineering degree is the starting point for this advanced program.
Whatever your ultimate career goal, you will find that the curriculum for your program of study includes courses that stress foundational knowledge (technical
competency), experiential learning, or a combination of the two. Along the way, you will improve your communication skills (both written and oral) and also your leadership skills. The underlying goal, however, is to ignite your passion for lifelong
learning. This is the key to career fulfillment. To help achieve this goal, the department maintains a modern curriculum, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, and a strong academic advising system all backed by faculty experts. We offer small
class sizes to encourage close faculty interaction, and our program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Thanks again for your interest and I hope you will find that
mechanical engineering at Gannon is the right place for you.
