Engineering Mechanics

The mission of the Engineering Mechanics program is to prepare students to have the analytical skills and knowledge to succeed in an engineering discipline.

The associate of arts degree in Engineering Mechanics provides the preparation for success in an engineering discipline.  This two-year program contains foundational material in both lecture and laboratory settings for the first two years of the undergraduate curriculum in engineering.  The coursework includes several physics, mathematics, and shuffet.JPGchemistry courses, as well as a number of general education courses.  Following completion of the AA degree at Lindsey Wilson, the student will then complete a bachelor's degree in engineering by transferring to a school of engineering.  Of course, completion of the program in and of itself does not guarantee transfer to any school.  It is essential that an Engineering Mechanics student maintain close and continuing contact with her or his adviser and the receiving college or university.

Program Distinctions

"Lindsey Wilson's 2-3 Engineering Mechanics program was great for me.  The small class size and personal attention at Lindsey Wilson helped me to develop the fundamental skills in calculus, chemistry and physics that are essential throughout later engineering classes.  When I entered the University of Kentucky, I worried about the change and hoped that I would still be able to succeed in my classes.  But I was very well-prepared for my upper-division classes.  I kept pace with the engineering students who have been at UK all along, and I have maintained a 3.9 grade point average.  The personalized attention and support from Lindsey Wilson professors helped me succeed here at UK."  Sarah Lynn Dennis, Class of 2006.

Why choose Engineering Mechanics?

Engineers apply the fundamental principles of science and mathematics to produce and maintain technical products and services for the good of mankind. Since society is becoming increasingly demanding of these products and services, engineering is a career in high demand. Successful students typically obtain high-quality jobs with outstanding benefits and work in a rewarding and satisfying profession.
