Teaching Area(s): Engineering

On Mount Union’s campus, the engineering faculty and I are collaborating to create a civil and mechanical engineering curricula geared for the future that addresses industrial needs. Our engineering curricula emphasizes two main things that industry wants: hands-on education and the ability to communicate effectively.

Mechanical Engineering Facilities and Equipment

The Mechanical Engineering Program is housed in the Engineering and Business (EBB) Building at the University of Mount Union, Alliance, Ohio. The space dedicated to the Mechanical Engineering Program includes three teaching laboratories that are shared by the faculty for multiple courses in Mechanical Engineering and a machine shop. A summary of the major equipment that is used by the Mechanical Engineering Program for course work and for projects associated with the courses:
