Mechanical Engineering, B.S.E.

Mechanical engineers study energy conversion in all of its forms. They integrate the mechanical and thermo-fluid sciences to analyze and solve problems involving power and motion. This enables them to work in cutting edge fields such as sustainable energy, hybrid and electric automotive design, self-driving vehicles, nanotechnology, and biotechnology while also being well prepared to solve today's automation, aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing problems.
