Career Outlook

Our mechanical engineering program is designed to prepare you for career success.

Our graduates have moved on to work within a wide range of industrial and governmental sectors, working on projects that range from designing aircraft jet engines; the manufacture and operation of miniature surgical robots; streamlining the aerodynamics of spacecraft; design and installation of renewable energy technologies; to the optimization of acoustical characteristics of music halls.

4+1 Program (B.S. + M.Eng degrees)

The program is designed to allow full-time engineering students to earn their B.S. and M.Eng. degrees in five years of study. Two graduate-level courses taken in the undergraduate program may be applied to both undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. Students usually commit to the program at the start of the second semester of their junior year, and juniors who are interested should contact their department chair.

In order to be accepted into the program, students must have a 3.0 cumulative grade point average at the end of the junior year (below 3.0 will be considered on a case-by-case basis).
