Return To Campus Plan
Lipscomb University's comprehensive plan to return to campus.Learn More
At our core, engineers are professional problem solvers. We see unmet needs, understand the constraints on choices, use mathematics to solve simplified models and get our hands dirty to test for solutions.
Join a program where everyone knows your name. Our small class sizes and elite faculty lend themselves to your personal success and challenge you to integrate faith and learning. You’ll also be taught in an environment built for engineering — our brand new building is home to small classrooms, study spaces, an innovation studio with the latest tools, cutting-edge laboratories and a machine shop.
With unique opportunities like engineering missions, professional societies, world-class partnerships and innovative design projects, you’ll thrive and grow here. And once you graduate, you’ll join your peers studying in top-ranked graduate programs or working for some of the world’s best companies.
Our program is ABET-accredited.
Specific courses required within mechanical engineering:
BI 3123 - Engineering Ethics: Redemption and Technology
EN 3143 - Technical Writing
Mathematics, physical science, and social science are satisfied in major.
Courses for major (97 hours)
The minor requirement in applied mathematics is automatically satisfied.
MA 1314 - Calculus I MUST be taken during the fall semester of the freshman year in order to enroll in PH 2414 in the spring semester. Otherwise, completion of the program may require more than eight semesters. Students who are not eligible to begin in the calculus sequence should consider enrolling in MA 1123 in the summer session before starting freshmen year.
Job placement rate
Become more competitive in the job market with an internship related to your interests. You’ll gain experience and boost your exposure. An internship will also help you learn whether you’ve chosen a career you’ll enjoy.
With a top-tier university education on your resume, you’ll be in high demand, whether you choose to launch your career or begin graduate school. Most of our programs have a placement rate of at least 90 percent within six months of graduation.
Learn from award-winning, experienced faculty who actually care about you. Our small class sizes allow us to get to know you personally. We lead an approachable community within our respective programs. Our faculty connections are the experts on their subject matter, too.
