Mechanical Systems Major

Bachelor of Design

Mechanical Systems involves understanding the design, construction, operation and maintenance of machines. This encompasses the development and design of new products and the machines to make them, as well as the design, planning and management of the systems, people and technical facilities needed to produce goods and services.

The Mechanical Systems major Handbook entry stipulates the complete requirements for the Mechanical Systems major.

Always use the University Handbook as your primary course planning tool.
