Are you a prospective student interested in designing mechanical solutions to meet societal needs? Starting with physics and mathematical laws, mechanical engineers develop better prosthetic limbs, improved cell-phone batteries, cleaner cars, quieter aircraft engines, advanced wind turbines, and much more.
Mechanical engineers work in various fields, from biomechanics and machine design to robotics and energy generation. They also figure out how to manufacture these things with new materials at lower cost and less waste and energy.
As a student in mechanical engineering, you will learn skills such as:
- Analysis and design of structural members, statics, strength of materials
- Mechanical properties of materials engineering
- Probability theory and statistics with emphasis on engineering applications
- Modeling, analysis, and simulation of dynamic systems
Exciting electives to fine-tune your degree include Robotics and Mechatronics; Molecular, Cellular & Tissues Biomechanics; Solar and Windpower Systems; Additive Manufacturing
97% of our College of Engineering class of 2019 students reported successful career placement within six months of graduation. Our graduates go on to work in a variety of industries, with placements such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and Marvell Semiconductors.
