Mechanical Engineering


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Schools

The Department of Mechanical Engineering grants B.S. and M.S. degrees in mechanical engineering, and a Ph.D. degree in integrated engineering.

A degree in mechanical engineering can lead to careers in many fields: design, patent law, manufacturing, research and development, biomedical engineering, technical consulting, product testing, technical sales, administration, and higher education. Today’s mechanical engineer may work in many different industries: automotive, aerospace, power generation, chemical, solar, petroleum, plastics, and metal processing are some of the possibilities. And within each industry no career is exactly the same: automotive engineers, for example, are involved in every aspect of vehicle design, from creating an aerodynamic exterior to the details of wiring and engine efficiency under the hood, from the safety of new air bag designs to the innovation of a new suspension system.
