Department of Mechanical Engineering
OC is one of just two universities in the 111-school Council of Christian Colleges and Universities with three ABET-accredited engineering programs, meaning our programs meet or exceed the standards of a rigorous set of engineer-defined criteria.
Core courses in heat transfer, machine design, and systems design, plus a thermal-fluids lab, highlight a rigorous degree program in mechanical engineering.
OC’s 87% pass rate on the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam far exceeds the national average of 73%. OC has a 100% placement rate for engineering graduates with college GPAs of 2.8 or higher.
