The mechanical engineering program at CSUF provides a foundation for professional engineering careers in private industry and government. Mechanical engineers are employed in a wide range of industries, such as manufacturing, transportation, energy, food, biomedical and others. In general, mechanical engineers are involved with the design, research, development, manufacture, testing, distribution, support, maintenance and recycling of devices and products. Automobiles, airplanes, home appliances, robots, rockets, space capsules, printers and computer hardware are some of the various products that have been customarily designed and developed by mechanical engineers. Mechanical engineers possess a firm understanding of science, mathematics and engineering needed to carry out these complex tasks which are so important to a modern technological society.

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The graduate curriculum is designed to provide a specialized education for career advancement or further work towards a doctoral degree.
