SPRING ARBOR, MI — A new mechanical engineering program at Spring Arbor University will begin in the fall 2021 semester, according to university officials.
The program will join Spring Arbor’s bachelor of science and electrical engineering program within the university’s School of Engineering, which opened last fall, according to a release from the university.
Students will have small class sizes and a strong emphasis on hands-on learning experiences, as well as flexibility to target specific areas of interest within the mechanical engineering field, the release said.
“Mechanical engineering continues to be one of the areas of study with the largest interest from prospective students,” said Jon Bahr, vice president of enrollment and marketing. “Adding this program to our diverse list of degree offerings is crucial in preparing students to be ‘critical participants in the contemporary world.’”
The program, which was built around NASA’s Engineering Design Process, will prepare
