BSE in Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan-Dearborn offers the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree in the field of Mechanical Engineering.

The mechanical engineering field is one of the oldest of the several engineering fields. It is concerned with so many areas of modern technology that the tasks and challenges of the mechanical engineer are most interesting and varied.

The mechanical engineer is comfortable working with people as well as with machines. For example, the role in vehicle design is that of making technical advances in performance, efficiency, and cost while simultaneously meeting the life and comfort requirements of operators and passengers. Logically, then, the mechanical engineer is active in the new fields of biomechanics, biomaterials, biomedical fluid mechanics and heat transfer, air and water pollution, water desalinization, sensory aids, and prostheses.

The undergraduate program in mechanical engineering provides first a strong foundation in all of the basic ingredients of engineering: the natural and physical sciences, mathematics, a comprehensive socio-economic-cultural background, the behavioral sciences, and finally the basic engineering sciences that begin the development of problem-solving skills.

BSE in Bioengineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, in collaboration with the other departments of the College of Engineering and Computer Sciences and the Department of Natural Sciences, offers the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree in the field of Bioengineering.

Bioengineering is an expanding branch of engineering that primarily deals with problems of medicine, healthcare, and—in general—quality of human life. It is a multidisciplinary field that combines scientific principles of biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics with the best engineering techniques developed in traditional areas (for example, mechanical, electrical, chemical, and computer engineering) and new breakthrough methods developed in recent years.

Bioengineering is a rapidly growing profession with expanding career opportunities and activities covering a wide spectrum. Bioengineers design and build medical instruments, artificial organs, prosthetic limbs, therapeutic devices, and medical imaging equipment. They help doctors to design new medical procedures and assist pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries in developing new, more efficient technologies. Finally, they find solutions for medical problems of consumer technology in the areas of safety, ergonomics, and comfort.

The undergraduate program in bioengineering provides first a strong foundation in all of the basic ingredients of engineering: the natural and physical sciences, mathematics, a comprehensive socio-economic-cultural background, the behavioral sciences, and, finally, the basic engineering sciences that begin the development of problem-solving skills.
