Our undergraduate programs combine a broad-based education in the engineering sciences with a strong grounding in quantitative, problem-solving, design, and communications skills. By emphasizing both analytical and creative methods, MechE degree programs give students the broad skill set they need to pursue their goals – whether that’s working as an engineer, founding a company, continuing on to graduate study and research, or going to a professional school to study medicine, business, or law.
Course 2 is a traditional program which 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 is a customizable bachelor’s degree which 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.
Professor Maria Yang has discovered valuable strategies and techniques for designing both consumer products and complex engineering systems, partnering with NASA, Ferrari, and IBM.
For the first time, first-year students in class 2.00b (Toy Product Design) performed skits — or “PLAYsentations” — demonstrating the toys they designed live in front of an audience on Killian Court.
