About Us


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.
