The US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment in mechanical engineering will grow by more than 22,000 nationwide in the decade 2018-2028, an increase of more than 4 percent. The State of Texas may provide an opportunity for Bobbats to develop skills in that field.
The State of Texas Board of Education has been approved by the Texas Board of Higher Education to offer a new degree in Mechanical Engineering.
The degree program has previously been approved by the Texas State University Board of Trustees. Ingram School of Engineering will launch its new degree program in the fall of 2022.
The new undergraduate degree will focus on industry 4.0 tools and technologies. The TXST program will be built from the bottom up in the state and the country and will be the first of its kind with a strong focus on Industry 4.0. The main purpose of Industry 4.0 is to promote digital production by promoting the link between products, production chains and business models.
Students from the first year of the introductory courses are highly selected for industry 4.0. The modern curriculum prepares students to design and develop intelligent, interconnected, safe mechanical systems.
Mechanical engineering is known to be one of the largest and most comprehensive engineering sectors. Graduates will have the opportunity to work in the fields of basic engineering, energy conversion, energy resources, engineering and technology management, environment and transportation, manufacturing, materials and structures, and gender and design.
Texas State Mechanical Engineering graduates will be able to work professionally with both thermal and mechanical systems to design and develop products and processes.
Bobbats in the program will have extensive experience in solving complex engineering issues with a wide range of technical issues and a wide range of stakeholders.
The university has a number of successful programs, including civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, and manufacturing engineering. These programs help to draw course content and teacher knowledge.
The Texas Labor Commission predicts that the demand for mechanical engineers will grow by more than 3,000 places in the state in 2016-2026, an increase of more than 18 percent. Located in the heart of Central Texas and in the heart of the Texas Innovation Corridor, the state of Texas is particularly suitable for this ambitious program.
