Course 2 is a structured program that prepares students for a broad range of career choices in the field of mechanical engineering. It develops the relevant engineering fundamentals, provides experience in their application, and introduces the important methods and techniques of engineering practice.
Course 2-A allows students to combine the essential elements of the traditional mechanical engineering program with study in another, complementary field. Starting with a solid mechanical engineering base, students are able to tailor their curriculum to fit their individual focus.
Course 2-OE is a structured program for students who wish to combine a firm foundation in mechanical engineering with a specialization in ocean engineering. The program includes engineering aspects of ocean sciences, ocean exploration, and those related to the utilization and protection of the oceans.
Underlying all three of our SB degree program options is an unrelenting emphasis on how to build things that work well and make a lasting impact. Through hands-on experience, we teach our students to think creatively, act ethically, and work analytically no matter what engineering problem they face.
Using light to imprint features onto polymer or plastic, Associate Professor Nick Fang's research led his team to disprove the established diffraction limit.
A passion for baseball and analytics has led to a career in the MLB for senior David Hesslink, the winningest pitcher in MIT history.
