What will I learn?

Mechanical engineers combine creativity and ingenuity to solve some of society’s toughest problems, as well as bring ideas to life. They design and build machines and the devices that power them, and are involved throughout the product development and manufacturing processes, from concept and design to installation and implementation.

Why Mechanical Engineering at Lawrence Tech?

Lawrence Technological University has been educating successful engineers for nearly 80 years, and provides students with the tools and knowledge they need to become the minds behind tomorrow’s great inventions. The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering program at Lawrence Tech is built around a core curriculum in manufacturing, mechanical systems, and thermal science. Students learn how products are designed, manufactured, and tested, as well as the basics of mechanisms and structures, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and energy conversion. Since many consumer products are electromechanical in nature, a mechatronics sequence is also included.

The curriculum emphasizes the development of strong analytic and problem-solving skills, while the Lawrence Tech focus on combining theory and practice means that the principles taught in the classroom are enhanced by many hands-on labs and real-world applications in courses taught by faculty with extensive industrial experience.

Like the field itself, the Mechanical Engineering program at Lawrence Tech offers a variety of opportunities. You can choose from six concentrations: alternative energy, automotive, manufacturing, nanotechnology, solid mechanics, and thermal fluids, and can further augment your preparation by pursuing minors in aeronautical engineering or energy engineering.
