Mechanical engineers are responsible for the creative design, development, research and testing of mechanical devices and systems from small tools to large engines and machines. You'll learn how to apply the principles of engineering such as the processing of materials, energy use and distribution, thermodynamics, heat transfer and motion. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines and plays an important role in numerous industries including automotive, manufacturing, aerospace, energy, robotics and biotechnology.
Below is an example list of courses you'll be taking throughout your time in the Mechanical Engineering program.
- Introduction to Engineering
- Calculus I
- Calculus II
- Introduction to C++
- Engineering Design II
- Engineering Graphics
- Calculus-based Physics I
Sophomore to Senior year:
- Mechanics of Solids
- Fluid Mechanics
- Mechanical Modeling and Simulation
- Design of Machine Components
