Mechanical Engineering & Engineering Science

In the Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Science Department, our faculty are experts in precision engineering, motorsports engineering, bioengineering, metrology, computational methods, mechanics and materials. Our programs are nationally recognized, preparing students to succeed in any discipline of mechanical engineering they choose.

Our plan of study is driven by our design sequence, which starts in the freshman year with the hands-on team projects of Introduction to Engineering. In their second year, students begin using the machine shop as they build air-powered engines. As juniors, they focus on electromechanical systems, and begin using rapid prototyping technology to build robots in their junior design class. The culmination of the design sequence is senior design, in which students take on a variety of more complex design/build projects, including multidisciplinary projects sponsored by the college’s industrial partners

Degree Programs:
Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.) - with concentrations in Motorsports or Energy Engineering
Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (M.S.M.E.)
Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.)
Doctor of Philosophy in Mechanical Engineering (Ph.D.)

Electrical & Computer Engineering

The Department offers two undergraduate degrees: the Bachelor's of Science in Electrical Engineering and the Bachelor's of Science in Computer Engineering. Our department also offers programs of study leading to Master's and Doctoral degrees in Electrical Engineering. The ECE program is designed to strike a balance between theory and practical knowledge. Electrical and computer engineering are highly collaborative fields involving areas such as electronics, control systems, electromagnetic, power systems, optoelectronics and microelectronics. The department's faculty members have excellent national and international reputations. They belong to prestigious professional organizations, and they have received various national awards.

As you begin planning a career, we hope you will consider the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as one of the first steps on your road to success.

Engineering Technology & Construction Management

The Engineering Technology and Construction Management programs at UNC Charlotte provides multiple paths to earning the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (B.S.E.T.) or the Bachelor of Science in Construction Management (B.S.C.M.) degree.  Students may enroll at UNC Charlotte as freshmen, transfer into the upper division of our 2+2 program after completing their first two years of engineering technology study (earning an AAS degree) at a community college, or transfer with less than two years of college credit as a general transfer student. The Department of Engineering Technology at UNC Charlotte has offered baccalaureate degree programs in several disciplines since 1970. Prior to 1991, the department conferred the Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree.  The BET degrees in Civil, Electrical and Mechanical received initial accreditation from ABET in 1974.  In 1991, the department began conferring the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology degree in those disciplines and has since added additional major of study in fire safety and the Bachelor of Science in Construction Management degree. Currently, the Department offers the following disciplinary areas:

Undergraduate Programs

Civil Engineering Technology
Construction Management
Electrical Engineering Technology
Fire Safety Engineering Technology
Mechanical Engineering Technology

Graduate Programs

M.S. Construction & Facilities Management
Master of Fire Protection & Administration
M.S. in Applied Energy and Electromechanical Systems

Systems Engineering & Engineering Management

Systems Engineering (SE) is an interdisciplinary area that designs and / or improves engineering, organizational and societal systems. Our students are exposed to systems, management, business and engineering concepts and applications, and have the necessary understanding and skills to work on and / or supervise multidisciplinary projects.

Systems Engineers can:

  • Handle interdisciplinary issues and problems
  • Create, analyze and improve complex systems
  • Coordinate operational issues from a systems perspective
  • Manage technical, business and management functions
  • Supervise multinational units, projects and global supply chains
  • Understand future trends in global markets and economies.
  • Develop product creation, production, marketing and sales strategies
