If you’re a creative thinker, enjoy solving problems and have a love of science, why not turn those qualities into a career? Mechanical engineers use engineering knowledge and skills to envision and create products that make our lives better and advance society. With our bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, you’ll learn how to develop, design, test and manufacture a variety of mechanical systems, devices and processes.
Mechanical engineers are essentially inventors who turn ideas into realities. They apply the theories of mathematics and science and the principles of engineering to design, develop and manufacture the tools, machines and mechanical devices that run our world. The discipline offers a wide range of opportunities: Mechanical engineers work on projects from jet engines to highly specialized microinstruments used in surgery.
After you graduate, you’ll have a very wide range of career opportunities to choose from. Mechanical engineers work in all sorts of industries, including aerospace, robotics, transportation, biomedicine and power generation. You’ll have the freedom to take your career in any direction you choose.
