The Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) and Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) requires students to complete a total of 128 credit hours that includes 51 hours in general education, math, and science courses and the remaining 77 hours in engineering courses. The UT Martin Engineering program provides students with small class sizes, personalized attention from faculty and staff, and the opportunity for a hands-on engineering educational experience. The program is implemented with personalized advising from an engineering faculty member throughout the educational experience. The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Degree, offers concentrations in civil, computer, electrical, manufacturing, and mechatronics. To cover mechanical engineering, the department offers a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. The specific courses required can be found in the university catalog under Engineering.

Mechanical Engineering is an engineering discipline that designs, develops, manufactures, and tests machines, engines, tools, and mechanical systems, including internal combustion engines, steam and gas turbines, machine tools, motor vehicles, aircraft, robots, and air-conditioning equipment. Mechanical engineering is one of broadest of engineering disciplines. It requires a solid understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics and energy. Our graduates work for defense contractors, manufacturing firms, automobile designs and supplies, and private engineering firms. To read more about the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, please see the UTM undergraduate course catalog.
Civil engineering is an engineering discipline that designs and supervises the construction of the physical and naturally built environment, including works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams, buildings, airports, tunnels, and other large facilities. Civil engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines which can be categorized into several sub-disciplines including construction, environmental, transportation, structural, geotechnical, and water resource engineering. Our graduates work for government, state, or local municipal agencies or for private engineering firms.
Computer engineering is a form of engineering that integrates skills and techniques from both computer science and electrical engineering. Computer engineers design and develop hardware and software for digital devices including wearable technologies, personal computers, mobile devices, and supercomputers. Computer engineers embed computers into other machines to create smart or "Internet of things" (IoT) style devices. They are responsible for developing digital technologies in phones, vehicles, medical technologies, consumer electronics, robotics, network and communication systems, and much more. Because computing technologies are a cornerstone of virtually every industry, computing graduates may go on to work varied industries such as education, healthcare, banking & finance, insurance, manufacturing, telecommunications, government, or retail.
Electrical engineering is an engineering discipline that designs, develops, tests, and supervises the manufacture of electronic and electrical equipment, including electric motors, lighting, wiring in buildings, radars, computers, consumer electronics, aircrafts, and telephones. Currently, many electrical engineers also work in areas of computer design and programming. Electrical engineering can be categorized into several sub-disciplines including power, control, signal processing, telecommunications, electronic, and electromagnetic engineering. Our graduates work for local and regional power companies, defense contractors, electronic design firms or in manufacturing-related companies.
Manufacturing engineers design the processes and equipment used to produce products. This may include the design of procedures or work sequences, and the design of tooling, dies or molds. These engineers determine the best way to use machinery to maximize efficiency and control costs. Manufacturing processes often involve automation and the use of robotics and electronic control systems. Our graduates work for companies that manufacture a wide array of products associated with the automotive, electronics and consumer product markets.
Mechatronics engineering is a multidisciplinary form of engineering focusing on robotics and automation. Graduates of the discipline design and manage automation equipment, particularly in modern manufacturing environments. Students will study topics from mechanical, electrical, and manufacturing engineering such as Kinematics and Dynamics of Machines, Electric Machines, Machine Vision, and Industrial Controls (PLCs)
