Learning Outcomes

By studying mechanical engineering, you can learn how to design and build for general-purpose machinery manufacturing, automotive parts manufacturing, and management of other companies and testing laboratories – all within the context of a Christian worldview.

This program will focus on developing hands-on, practical, and technical skills using both lecture and lab environments. Your assignments are designed to simulate real-life scenarios because we believe that having experience is imperative to your pursuit of jobs with a mechanical engineering degree.

Our curriculum seeks to prepare you to apply mathematical and scientific principles to design engineering solutions as well as develop operational evaluations of physical systems used in manufacturing and end-product systems. We desire to equip you to use engineering methodology to develop machines and other products to make processes more efficient.

Practical Experience

In addition to offering hands-on training in the classroom, we’ve partnered with a number of companies that provide the opportunity to complete an internship and gain real-world skills alongside professionals who are already in the field. This is a chance to make practical use of your skills and put your knowledge to the test in real problem-solving situations. Our students have worked for companies like:

  • Boeing
  • Georgia Pacific
  • NASA
  • Disney
  • National Ground Intelligence Center

You can have the opportunity to serve God and use your engineering talents to impact industrial, environmental, and societal contexts for Christ.


What Will You Learn in Our Mechanical Engineering Bachelor’s Degree Program?

Our faculty know that in order to Train Champions for Christ, there needs to be a precedent of excellence – a training ground that strives to help develop you in your God-given gifts and abilities. Liberty seeks to foster the professional and technical skills you need to be an asset in the field of mechanical engineering. Throughout this Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree, you’ll take engaging courses that cover topics like mechanical design, water flow, dynamic systems, heat transfer, statics, and thermodynamics.

As a mechanical engineer, you will be working with a number of different materials in the manufacturing process. We will teach you about the various properties, strengths and weaknesses, and even smart properties of these materials. One of the courses you take will teach you how to develop and program computer-controlled machines to carry out certain tasks. You will learn how to use sensors and motion transmission controllers to get machines to function the way you want.
