Contributing to the aspirations of a land-grant university through education, research and service.


Mechanical engineering is a broad field primarily concerned with the principles of motion, energy and force. Mechanical engineers are called upon to design machinery, mechanisms and systems that function safely, reliably and efficiently to serve needs of society. To accomplish this, mechanical engineers apply scientific principles to problems that involve the motion of heat, gases, fluids and solid materials.

Mechanical engineers may be found in nearly all segments of society. They work in industry, consulting practices, government facilities and universities. As technology becomes more prevalent in daily life, mechanical engineers are increasingly called upon to apply that technology to develop devices that improve the standard of living.
