What will I learn?

Program Description

The Mechanical Engineering program prepares students to conduct research and to develop, design, manufacture, and test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices. Students will become familiar with power-producing machines such as electric generators, internal combustion engines, and steam and gas turbines, as well as power-using machines such as refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, machine tools, material handling systems, elevators and escalators, industrial production equipment, and robots used in manufacturing. The ME major features two areas of specialization that are particularly appropriate for Connecticut: manufacturing and aerospace. Graduates enter industry in conceptual design, systems engineering, manufacturing, or product research and development in an array of fields, including developing aircraft, aircraft components, satellites, rockets, fuel cells, and vehicles. The program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
