This guide has been prepared to aid students who are currently enrolled in the Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics (ESM) in fulfilling the requirements for a B.S. in ESM and to provide information about the curriculum for others who may be interested in becoming ESM majors. It should be considered as a supplement to the requirements published in the VPI&SU Undergraduate Catalog and is in no way intended to supercede any statements in the Undergraduate Catalog.
The general curriculum for the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science and Mechanics is available here. Specific checksheets for Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science and Mechanics, including the Biomechanics option, Engineering Physics option, and the Minor in Engineering Science and Mechanics are available here.
Upon completion of 90 credit hours and with at least one more semester to complete all requirements for the bachelor's degree, undergraduate students having an overall grade point average of at least 3.3 can apply for the ESM Undergraduate/Graduate Degrees (BS/MS, BS/ME or BS/PhD) Program.
The Engineering Communications Program provides MSE and ESM undergraduates with superior skills in professional communication.
Information about opportunities for ESM grads and companies that have hired them in the past.
This report serves two purposes. First, since 6 research credits are required for the BME minor program, the University guidelines require the department to keep a record of each student’s work in every course of the undergraduate minor program. Second, it affords a means whereby each student will receive appropriate approval for and assistance in planning BME research studies.
VStudents from the department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanics along with Dr. Nicole Abaid are conducting a Senior Design Project titled "Controlling Crowds Through Human-Robot Interactions." The goal of this project is to study how we can use a human-robot interaction to influence the movement of a group of people. To test our study, we will be performing an interactive experiment using a mobile robot and human participants in The Cube Lab at Moss Arts Center.
We are looking for student volunteers! Students will have an opportunity to participate in university research, and gain exposure to robotics, dynamics, and motion capture analysis in a state of the art lab.
