Dahn Yoga exercises can be a great way to stimulate the mind, and so can pursuing a higher education degree, as both are able to challenge the brain in ways that some people may have never thought possible.
Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) announced that beginning this fall, students who want to stretch their mind in the mechanical engineering field will be able to pursue a bachelor’s of science in mechanical engineering (BSME) degree.
This is great news for local residents, as previously the only program in the area available to students was offered in south central Indiana. As more than 40 percent of IUPUC students are working adults who have families, this is a great opportunity for those who are looking to get involved in mechanical engineering but cannot afford to commute.
Local companies are also excited about this program, as it could provide them with more potential employees.
“Our region employs a large concentration of engineers, but there is a lack of four-year engineering programs in the area,” said Mark Gerstle, the vice president and chief administration officer at Cummins Incorporated.
