The work of mechanical engineers is all around us. From our household appliances and ventilation systems to the cars, ships, and airplanes we travel in, it has all been designed, tested, and manufactured by mechanical engineers. Mechanical engineers are needed wherever there is machinery. When it comes to designing and improving machines, mechanical engineers drive every stage of design, manufacturing, maintenance, construction, and research.

Mechanical engineering is the broadest discipline of engineering. Mechanical engineers use principles of engineering graphics, mathematics, materials, physics, and economics to conceive, design, develop, manufacture, operate and maintain processes and devices.

The mechanical engineer's knowledge and skills are needed in a remarkable range of industries: automotive and aerospace, energy and environmental, communication, materials and manufacturing, food and chemical processing, medical and biomechanical, resource industries, transportation, and others. The broad skill set used in this discipline opens a wide door of career possibilities.


Materials Engineering

Material engineers improve and create materials needed in our daily lives. They are experts in the science behind materials and use this knowledge to develop materials to serve specific functions. Materials engineers are needed in a wide range of industries.



Biomechanical Engineering

You're a machine. Machines surround us – both living and mechanical. Biomechanical engineering uses the knowledge and principles behind mechanical engineering to work on the systems in the human body. Their work can include developing artificial limbs and implantable medical devices.
