From designing to fabricating — Mechanical Engineers do it all
Just what comes to mind when you think of mechanical engineers? Are they people who design appliances — or people who design airplanes? Or both?
Mechanical engineers really do it all, designing and making nearly everything you can imagine. They design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, motor vehicles, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and more. And at the Watson School, we'll teach you about the how and why, as well as help you learn to design and fabricate the products that will affect your life and the lives of everyone around you.
So, whether or not you tinkered with the toaster in your younger days — and whether or not you could put it back together without having parts left over — we'll teach you the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, including computer-aided design, give you hands-on experience and prepare you for whatever path you wish to take in the mechanical engineering field.
Our Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET.
