Mechanical engineering (ME) is one of the broadest of the engineering disciplines, therefore, mechanical engineers are the generalists of the engineering profession. Mechanical engineers design, construct, test and operate many types of mechanical, thermal and biological devices. They are involved in almost every industry, including aerospace, automotive, bioengineering, communications, electronics, energy, food processing, HVAC, manufacturing, power generation and refrigeration, as well as business, government and academia. The ME program aims to prepare students with a breadth and depth in technical knowledge so that they can work immediately in most areas of the profession.
