Mechanical engineering, one of the most general branches of engineering, requires broad knowledge in many fields: mechanics, thermal science, design, machinery, instrumentation, and more. The breadth and flexibility of a mechanical engineer’s education provides a wide choice of careers in such fields as energy and sustainability, aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, robotics, and biomechanical engineering.

The BS degree in Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABEThttps://www.abet.org, under the commission’s General Criteria and Program Criteria for Mechanical and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.
