LSC-Kingwood Engineering Department

Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering that applies principles of engineering, basic science, and mathematics (including multivariate calculus and differential equations) for modeling, analysis, design, and realization of physical systems, components, or processes. Mechanical engineering curriculum also prepares students to work professionally in both thermal and mechanical systems areas. Mechanical engineering is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.The lead society of this engineering discipline is the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
