Mechanical Engineering Systems BSE Program – Havelock, NC

The NC State Mechanical Engineering Systems (MES) Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) Program is a site-based, transfer program located on the campus of Craven Community College (CCC) campus in Havelock, North Carolina.  Students in the MES Program earn a B.S.E. with a concentration in mechanical engineering systems.  The MES program is ABET-accredited under the Mechanical Engineering criteria.  Upon graduation, students will be qualified to apply for any job-seeking mechanical engineering applicants.

Mechanical engineering courses, taught by nationally recognized mechanical and aerospace engineering faculty at NC State, are delivered live from the Raleigh campus via HD interactive video conferencing. MES students attend the same engineering lectures as Raleigh-based students.  NC State mechanical engineers are known for their technical abilities, and MES graduates have the high-level technical skills expected from any NC State ME graduate.

Local NC State faculty at CCC teaches the Systems engineering content, conducts all laboratory experiences, and directs students in the two-semester capstone design experience.  MES students enjoy small class sizes, extensive direct interaction with their local professors, and develop close-knit groups with their local peers.  Students learn in a small environment with a focus on individual mentoring.

Hands-on laboratory exercises allow students to explore and experience theoretical concepts learned in their courses and practice skills such as manual and computerized measurement techniques, data analysis, design of experiments, and writing technical communications.

The unique combination of these skills allows you to be well prepared to meet the technical and non-technical challenges of today’s engineering workplace.
