Mechanical Engineering

College of Engineering

Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, manufacture, manage, and control engineering systems and their components, from the nanoscale on.  The broadest of all engineering disciplines -- and thus the most flexible for career options -- mechanical engineering requires a solid grasp of mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, and energy. Our graduates have gone on to become CEOs, entrepreneurs, chief engineers, business analysts, astronauts, faculty, physicians, patent lawyers, and professionals in a variety of other areas.
