Thanks for your interest in Mechanical Engineering at LeTourneau University. Mechanical Engineering is an exciting field and one which impacts virtually every area of your life, including the design, development, and manufacturing of every kind of vehicle, power system, machine, and tool.
Mechanical engineers use science and mathematics to develop such systems as automobiles, planes, engines (internal combustion, gas turbine, jet…), heating, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems, robots, hydraulic & pneumatic power systems and many others. LeTourneau’s B.S. in Engineering degree with a Mechanical concentration is designed to prepare you to apply the principles you will learn to provide for the needs of society in a vast range of exciting areas.
All students in the ME concentration have mechanical coursework in subjects such as Statics, Dynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Mechanics of Materials, Mechanisms and Kinematics, Heat Transfer, Machine Design, and Mechanical Vibrations. In addition to the traditional mechanical courses, our students also receive excellent instruction in multi-disciplinary coursework in Electric Circuits, Digital Electronics, and Mechatronics You’ll have the opportunity to use modern equipment in the labs, to work on projects for national competitions, and to be part of design teams developing systems from initial proposal to design, fabrication, testing, and reporting.
A bachelor’s of science degree in engineering with a mechanical concentration will provide the foundation that you need to enter a wide variety of areas in mechanical engineering. Graduates from the LeTourneau University ME concentration are employed at such companies and agencies as Raytheon, John Deere, NASA, Rockwell Collins, General Motors, Polaris Industries, Vertex, Ford Motor Company, Cessna Aircraft, General Dynamics, GE, and Boeing. It is our goal that they make a real contribution to the engineering profession and bring glory to God through their lives.
I encourage you to visit the campus to see our facilities and to meet our faculty and students.
May the Lord bless and guide you in all of your future plans.
Dr. Greg Reynolds
Mechanical Concentration Coordinator
