Mechanical Engineering Bachelor's Degree

Bachelor of Science (BS) in Mechanical Engineering

As a student of The University of Texas Permian Basin Mechanical Engineering program, you will be trained as a professional engineering that is able to formulate and solve problems of today and tomorrow. To a great extent, our standard of living and high level of technology are due to the diligent and innovative efforts of engineers. Future accomplishments could help increase energy and food supplies, develop more contamination-free power plants, aid in medical science's fight against disease, and expand our computational and design skills beyond imagination. While scientists "explore what is," engineers "create what never has been."
