Are you the type of person who wonders how things work, likes to take things apart, and enjoys building things and improving them? Are you inquisitive, a critical thinker and detail oriented? These are all characteristics of successful mechanical engineering students. As a mechanical engineer, you could work in nearly every sector of our economy including energy systems, advanced materials, biomedical devices (such as prosthetic limbs), environmental products and enhancements, manufacturing and automation machines and processes, and the solutions to an endless array of technical problems. Upon graduation you might end up designing machines to make candy bars or the next generation of transportation systems for land, sea, air and space.
