Mechanical Engineering, Bachelor of Science

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering offers numerous career opportunities. With this degree, students can find employment within countless engineering-related fields. Mechanical engineers design, analyze and oversee the production of many products ranging from airplanes to medical devices. For example, mechanical engineers design machines that produce power such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines, as well as machines that use power such as refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. They also design systems used in production environments such as robots, conveyor systems and automated transfer stations. Mechanical engineers are frequently responsible for the integration of sensors, controllers and machinery in an array of applications. A bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering enables a graduate to enter the workforce as a practicing engineer or continue their education as a graduate student in an engineering related field.
