What will I learn?

As a discipline, mechanical engineering draws on a wide variety of other disciplines: mathematics, life science, physical science, design, physics, and more. This means that as you work toward your bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, you’re doing more than preparing yourself for a successful career: you’re building a broad, multidisciplinary foundation of knowledge that will serve you no matter what you choose to do in the future. The B.S. in mechanical engineering has three main focus areas: applied mechanics, thermo-fluids engineering, and materials science. By combining these three disciplines, you’ll have the tools to build effective solutions to nearly any mechanical engineering problem.
