The B.S. in Mechanical Engineering combines quantitative, design and technical knowledge with hands-on skill in preparation for one of the world’s most versatile and in-demand professions. From nano-scaled innovations in medicine to the future of space flight, mechanical engineers design the future.
Nearly every change in business, science and engineering involves mechanical engineers. The job is highly individualistic and flexible because it is so broad. That means job security and professional challenge for those willing to keep their knowledge and skills fresh and relevant.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a comprehensive curriculum (grounded in foundational mathematics and physics) that prepares you for professional work or further graduate study. Design is integrated throughout the curriculum. You will gain experience with engineering computer software and a range of laboratory tools as you progress toward upper level coursework and a yearlong senior capstone project.
