Our Mission

The mission of the A. Leon Linton Department of Mechanical Engineering is to prepare students to be leaders in Mechanical Engineering careers, capable of producing innovative solutions.

Our Vision

The vision of the A. Leon Linton Department of Mechanical Engineering is to be the institution of choice for Mechanical Engineering education, encompassing technical leadership, innovation, and service.

 

Mechanical Engineering Mission

The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is to prepare individuals for careers in Mechanical Engineering, to provide industry and the profession with well-educated graduates, to help maintain and upgrade the capabilities of practicing engineers, and to generate solutions to industrial problems through applied research.

The department’s vision is to be the institution of choice for Mechanical Engineering education because of an accessible and effective program focused on industry needs and the development of strong professional relationships between students, faculty, and alumni.

 

Objectives

The objectives of the program in Mechanical Engineering are to:

  • produce graduates capable of applying fundamental science, math, and engineering principles, in conjunction with modern technology, in an interdisciplinary engineering work environment 
  • produce graduates who are competent to pursue advanced degrees in engineering
    produce graduates capable of working in global technical locations as well as in the related industries of Southeast Michigan.
  • produce graduates capable of working in teams, utilizing ethical judgment with strong communication and leadership skills
  • produce graduates capable of understanding contemporary global engineering issues and recognizing the importance of lifelong learning
  • provide equivalent day and evening engineering degree programs for both working and full-time students.

 

Expected Outcomes for a Lawrence Tech Mechanical Engineering Graduate

Upon graduation, an LTU Mechanical Engineer should be able to demonstrate:

  • An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret data
  • An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • An ability to function on multidisciplinary team
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • An ability to communicate effectively
  • The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • A knowledge of contemporary issues
  • An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
