The University of Alabama's distance degree program gives you the opportunity to obtain an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering with minimal travel or job disruption. Lectures and coursework are delivered online, and labs are offered at three locations in the state of Alabama.
As a student you can train in the science of designing a component, a machine or a system in a process. BSME students pursue careers in many industries such as automotive, power generation, bioengineering, textiles, robotics, manufacturing, research and development, pulp and paper, steel and materials, petro-chemical and aerospace. Also, BSME graduates may pursue post-graduate learning in business, law, medicine, dentistry and other professions.
The BSME degree earned in this format is rigorous and identical to the degree earned by campus students at The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. You’ll receive the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to excel in a career that promises many challenges and great rewards!
