Evolving from a 40-year tradition of teaching applied engineering science in the Mechanical Engineering Technology Program, the Mechanical Engineering Program was first offered at Georgia Southern Fall of 2011. Because of the large number of students in our 2-year Regents’ Engineering Transfer Program to Georgia Tech who decided to complete their degrees at Georgia Southern, we not only had freshman, but also sophomores and juniors ready to take courses Fall of 2011. The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) program received accreditation from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) in 2012 and has maintained accreditation since. We now have over 1000 students working on undergraduate or graduate mechanical engineering degrees within our department.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers lecture and laboratory courses on both the Statesboro Campus as well as the Armstrong Campus. The first three years of the undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) program may be completed on the Armstrong Campus while the final year must be completed on the Statesboro Campus. In addition to the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree, students may also be interested in pursuing a Master of Science in Applied Engineering degree on the Statesboro Campus.
On the Statesboro Campus, courses are taught, and research labs are located, in three different buildings: Engineering, Information Technology, and Carruth. On the Armstrong Campus, courses are taught, and laboratories are located, in University Hall.
The location of these buildings on the Statesboro Campus can be found on the interactive campus map:
