The Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering and the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering offered at the Long Beach campus are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The Mechanical Engineering Extension Program offered at Lancaster University Center, Lancaster, CA is seeking accreditation in Fall 2014.
The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is supported by a professional Advisory and Development Council (ADC) comprised of outstanding engineers and executives from industry and government agencies in Southern California. The role of the ADC is to form a liaison between the University and industry and to help the administration and faculty remain informed of modern engineering practices and help with Continuous Improvement Process (CIP).
Students have the benefit of joining the student chapters of professional societies:
As student members of professional societies, students can attend local, regional, national, and international meetings and conferences, participate in student contests, become eligible for sponsored scholarships, interact with professionals from industry, and many other benefits.
