Engineering, Mechanical

Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.)

When you earn your mechanical engineering degree, you will be a practice-ready engineer with career opportunities in a variety of engineering and related fields. The practical experience you gain will also give you an advantage when it comes to applying for jobs or graduate school.

Our graduates can expect to find career opportunities in mechanical design, the energy industry, computer-aided engineering, the automotive and aeronautical industries, and manufacturing, among other fields.

Program Faculty

Our diverse faculty bring extensive industry experience from all over the world. You’ll have the chance to work with them on research projects, and our small class sizes mean you’re not just a face in the crowd.

Career Opportunities

Start your career as soon as you graduate. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment for mechanical engineers is expected to grow 9% by 2026, with a median annual salary of $87,370.
