Get an in-depth look into the process physical solutions achieved through a mathematical and scientific approach

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering is an exciting field that explores the solving of society's problems with a physical solution. The curriculum involves the study of mathematics, materials, basic mechanics, thermal science, and fluid mechanics. This theory and the associated analysis skills are then put into practical use in a sequence of design-oriented classes that emphasize open-ended problem solving. Prepare for careers ranging from product design and research, manufacturing, automotive, materials/textiles and many other areas.

Mechanical Engineering Curriculum

In the College of Engineering, both theoretical and practical skills can be further developed and refined by participating in an optional Cooperative Education (Co-op) program. A combination of hands-on mechanical skills with skills in mathematics, science and computing are great assets and predictors of success in this field.
