Congratulations to the Mechanical Engineering Department for 30 years on campus!
The Pacifican would like to congratulate Pacific’s Mechanical Engineering Department on its 30th anniversary!
Alumni, faculty, emeritus faculty and students are invited to celebrate this impressive achievement with sponsored events throughout the weekend. Planned festivities include an afternoon BBQ, an alumni dinner and a presentation by Department Chair Chi-Wook Lee, who holds a doctorate in mechanical engineering.
First ABET-accredited in 1985, the program has only grown and flourished since. Today, the mechanical engineering program serves over 185 students, has 11 expert faculty members and remains unique in its offering of a blended Master’s/Bachelor’s program.
Lee predicts that the program will only continue expanding — maybe even globally. “I would like to see more students study abroad or do their co-op internationally,” he shared. He hopes this might involve summer opportunities with the Hanyang University in Seoul, Korea, where he arranged for a few students to study in the past.
Best of luck to Pacific’s Mechanical Engineering Department as they continue to strive forward, building a bright future and meeting with much success.
