BS Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering: Diversity and versatility
The Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering at Trine University is among the most diverse, versatile and prevalent of all engineering disciplines. If something moves, it requires the expertise of a mechanical engineer to assess the physics of the environment and of the parts that work to form the whole, the aesthetics of the final product and the logistics of the manufacturing process.
Mechanical engineers are integral to industries including:
- Technology and innovation
- Energy conversion
- Health care
- Aerospace and automation
The degree: Tools for modern engineering
In the Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering program, you will be immersed in the fundamental tools of modern mechanical engineering:
- Advanced mathematics
- Laboratory testing
- Computer simulation
Trine University's mechanical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The experience: Hands-on projects through the entire degree program
Practical designs are the result of any engineering effort, and beginning as a freshman, you will be exposed to project work emphasizing engineering design. Project management, design and manufacture techniques are learned through hands-on involvement in the laboratories, and brought to life in a year-long senior design project completed in the senior year.
The result: Successful careers in crucial industries
The Wade Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering places students in industries critical to the nation's interests, including:
- Energy conservation
Within six months of graduating, 100 percent* of graduates secure opportunities within the field and enjoy starting annual salaries exceeding $60,000, with some as high as $100,000.
*Class of 2019; knowledge rate of 96 percent.
