What makes the mechanical engineering program at York College, one of the best mechanical engineering schools in Pennsylvania, unique? A hands-on, project-based design component beginning in the freshman year, a required co-op consisting of three semesters of full-time employment, small class sizes and labs, and a large-scale real-world capstone design project which includes projects such as formula-style race cars, dune buggies and autonomous robots.
Engineering Co-operative work experience is a requirement for all Engineering students. Through this program you will have the opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience with paid professional engineering work in industry. Learn more about our Co-op program.
The Mechanical Engineering major at York College is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Tim Garrison, Scott Kiefer, and Emine Celik, assistant professors, physical sciences/mechaical engineering, presented a paper titled "A Project-Based, Industry-Driven Freshman Design Sequence for Mechanical Engineers," at the 2014 Freshman Year Engineering Experience Conference.
