Mechanical engineering is concerned with energy and its transformations and the design of objects and structures that move. Mechanical engineers are responsible for conceiving, designing, manufacturing, testing, and marketing devices and systems that alter, transfer, transform and utilize the energy form that ultimately causes motion. Employment opportunities range over product design, development, manufacturing, sales, management, teaching, and research. Employers include industrial companies, consulting firms, and government agencies and non-governmental organizations. The UNF Office of Career Services provides information on companies seeking mechanical engineering graduates for permanent positions or current students for employment in cooperative education positions.

Through the university governance and administrative processes, after publication of these curriculum maps, changes may occur in the academic calendar, admission and graduation requirements, academic programs, course offering, policies, and regulation. As a result, these curriculum maps should not be construed as an agreement between the School of Engineering and the reader or as an irrevocable commitment from the School of Engineering to the reader. While a reasonable effort will be made to publicize such changes, a student in encouraged to seek current information from appropriate offices, because responsibility for complying with all applicable requirements ultimately rests with the student.
