Mechanical Engineering

Why We Are Different

A mechanical engineering education develops student skills in designing product and processes.  Mechanical engineers use analytical tools and problem solving skills to achieve their design and overcome processing barriers and constraints.  To accomplish this, the mechanical engineer considers the forces and thermal sensitivities that a product, its parts, or its subsystems will encounter.  Students learn to design products and processes for functionality, aesthetics, and durability, and are taught using a hands-on approach, while working with area employers to learn the best manufacturing methods that result in successful industrial implementations.  Teamwork skills are developed to design and build products and systems, and these valuable skills can be applied to launch careers in many exciting fields.

What You Will Learn From Us

Mechanical Engineering is perhaps the most diverse and versatile of the engineering disciplines. In addition to physics and mathematics, it encompasses key elements of dynamics, statics, vibrations, and controls.  Many industries use these skills including aerospace, electrical, civil, paper, energy, and materials sciences. Mechanical engineering touches virtually every aspect of modern life, including mobile phones, aluminum, and power plants, and mechanical engineers are educated and positioned to adapt, define, and direct change.

Career Opportunities

The mechanical engineering degree offers a wide array of career possibilities.  Mechanical engineers play key roles in such industries as pulp and paper, automotive, tire manufacturing, plastics, aerospace, computers, electronics, electromechanical systems, energy, robotics, automation, and manufacturing. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) currently lists 36 technical divisions, ranging from advanced energy systems to aerospace engineering.  Beyond industrial careers, mechanical engineers can also be found in a variety of professions such as medicine, law, corporate management, and technical sales.
