bachelor degrees

Vaughn College's bachelor degree programs in engineering and engineering technology include mechatronic engineering, mechanical engineering, electronic engineering technology with an avionics or general electronics concentration, and mechanical engineering program in computer-aided design or aeronautical options. The mechatronic engineering bachelor of science degree is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Both the electronic engineering technology and mechanical engineering technology degrees are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Engineering: Mechatronic Engineering Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree

New York's first bachelor degree program in mechatronic engineering, which combines mechanical, electrical and computer engineering. Vaughn's rigorous program provides students with the knowledge and experience they need to work in the aerospace, automotive, computer, communications and other high-tech industries. The program includes a strong foundation in electronic and mechanical engineering, an advanced liberal arts curriculum, specialized electives and real-time projects provided by Vaughn's industry advisory council of leading technology manufacturers.This program is is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The rigorous program has several ojectives: It provides a link between academia and industry; and provides students with the knowledge of analytical, computational and experimental methods. Graduates will have the ability to evaluate these methods for use in practical situations.

Core courses include a strong foundation in mechanical engineering and electronics. Students then choose electives in engineering analysis, design and computer programming. In the last two semesters of the program, students will work on design projects related to mechatronics components development. The program instills a broad-based understanding of the fundamental technical subject areas associated with mechatronics engineering so students are ready for immediate employment in industry or graduate study.

Engineering: Mechanical Engineering Bachelor of Science (BS) Degree

The mechanical engineering BS degree will provide students with a strong foundation in engineering analysis and design, the knowledge and experience in analytical, computational, and experimental methods, and the ability to evaluate these approaches for use in a given practical situation. Students will be introducedto the reliability and safety analysis of engineering components, exposed to the design process throughout the curriculum. Technical computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering courses, such as CATIA, Patran-Nastran, Engineering Analysis with MATLAB, and Finite Element Analysis with MATLAB are developed in this program to satisfy the need of engineering industries as well as to provide our students with the knowledge and technology to design and evaluate the components of an engineering system. Graduates will be well qualified to obtain position in any engineering industry.

The goals of the engineering and technology department for developing this program is to provide students with strong foundation in engineering mechanics, mathematics, computer-aided design and fundamental of engineering as well as to provide them with knowledge and experience in analytical, computational, and experimental methods, and the ability to design and evaluate these approaches for use in a given situation. 

Mechanical engineering is one of the high demand engineering disciplines in industry. Today, mechanical engineers are employed in a wide variety of engineering fields for a wide range of engineering tasks, such as, structural analysis, engineering design, HVAC, engineering reliability, vibration analysis, fluid-dynamics, computer-aided design, automation engineering, and robotics, to name a few.
