The Department of Mechanical Engineering (DME) at Notre Dame University-Louaize offers the degree of Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering. The DME is staffed with dedicated faculty members whose demonstrated expertise and knowledge have been a major driving force behind the excellent reputation that this department enjoys. Our program provides a lasting educational foundation and renders our graduates technically and socially adept and prepared for exciting careers in a diverse and fast-moving workforce. Our students are required to gain a firm understanding of engineering principles through a wide spectrum of theoretical and design courses intended to teach them the skills necessary to analyze and solve engineering problems, and to properly design engineering systems. The undergraduate experience culminates with a year-long senior design project. Several laboratory courses are offered in order to give students practical experience by direct application of engineering principles.
Mechanical engineering is a broad engineering discipline that incorporates skills and expertise in the areas of design, manufacturing, mechanics, thermal sciences and mechatronics that are essential to most sectors of industry. Research in the DME covers most Mechanical Engineering disciplines as can be shown from faculty publications in international refereed journals and conferences.
The Department dedicated faculty and staff strive to graduate engineers naturally inclined to life-long learning and problem solvers ready to deal with any technological challenge. Many of our alumni have begun to generate new knowledge or exercise leadership in their positions to the benefit of society. Students are also provided opportunities to gain leadership and communication skills and make difference worldwide with international professional societies such as ASHRAE, ASME and Engineers Without Borders.
