Undergraduate Degree Programs

The department of Mechanical Engineering provides one engineering degree program (BS), two engineering technology degree programs (BSET) and two certificates for undergraduate students.

What is Mechanical & Energy Engineering?

Mechanical and Energy Engineering prepares students for a green future and the ever-growing fields of energy and sustainability. With a hands-on approach and taught by research focus and experience-driven faculty, undergrads who choose to pursue a degree with Mechanical and Energy will combine fundamentals of mechanical engineering with a specialization on subjects related to energy production, management, and distribution. Our graduate students will learn fundamental and applied knowledge compatible with mechanical engineering, renewable energy, energy modelling, manufacturing and fossil fuels.

What is Engineering Technology?

At UNT, our ET programs are strongly based on advanced applications of technology to solve engineering problems. They introduce experiential learning activities in virtually every course and emphasize hands-on laboratory activities without the abstract manipulation of mathematics.

In many circles ET is described as hands-on or applied engineering. ET graduates are in high demand and work side-by-side with other engineering graduates in a variety of technical fields.
