Visual Thinking for Engineers
Professor Maria Yang has discovered valuable strategies and techniques for designing both consumer products and complex engineering systems, partnering with NASA, Ferrari, and IBM.
Tackling the world’s challenges in the field
Senior Yara Azoni interned for MX3D in Amsterdam through the MISTI program, where she worked on designing and building the world's first 3D printed stainless steel bridge, complete with smart technologies.
Get Excited and Build Things
From eccentric faculty to passionate students, from academic rigor to creative exploration, from classroom innovation to customizable curriculums, a MechE education is a one-of-a-kind combination of uncompromising analysis, practical hands-on experience, and the kind of uninhibited creativity that can only come from real excitement for making and building.
The undergraduate program is compromised of the traditional Course 2 degree, the customizable 2-A degree, and the 2-OE ocean engineering degree.
The graduate program offers 7 master’s degrees and a PhD or ScD, as well as a dual MS/MBA degree and a joint program in Oceanography/Applied Ocean Science & Engineering with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
MechE’s approximately 90 postdoctoral scholars are part of a larger community of more than 1,400 postdocs at MIT. They hold doctoral degrees and pursue a program of research and training under the direction of an MIT faculty member.
