Department of Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering is an engineering discipline that combines engineering physics and mathematics principles with materials science to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.
Mechanical Engineering is one of the core and oldest branches of Engineering. The discipline provides in-depth understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, energy conservation and manufacturing.
Mechanical engineers research, design, develop, build, and test mechanical and thermal devices, including tools, engines, and machines.
Employment of mechanical engineers is projected to grow 5 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Job prospects may be best for those who stay abreast of the most recent advances in technology.
