NAU Mechanical Engineering Bachelor of Science
The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Our programs benefit from continuous assessment of learning outcomes and educational objectives mandated by both Northern Arizona University and by the ABET Computing Accreditation Commission. Results from these assessment activities and discussions with our Electrical Engineering Program Advisory Committee are used to make program and course changes. This results in programs that better meet the learning needs of students and better meet the demand for graduates who can be successful in their chosen career. Below are the educational objectives and learning outcomes for the BSE program.

|Undergraduate, by year||Degrees
|Graduate, by year||Degrees
- ** Number of master’s students enrolled and graduated are for all engineering and computer science disciplines because both masters programs are interdisciplinary, making it impossible to determine accurate program numbers. The number enrolled in electrical engineering averages about 8 with 3 graduates per year.
