We teach you the fundamentals in statics, dynamics, design, materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer—knowledge that lets you design and build creative solutions for our global challenges. You also get the opportunity to explore aspects of traditional mechanical and aerospace engineering as well as emerging research in biomedical engineering and nanotechnology.George Washington University's Mechanical Engineering program offers options in aerospace engineering, biomechanical engineering, patent law and medical preparation.
You will learn to analyze forces, stress, energy, power, materials, motion, manufacturability and societal impact. You can apply these lessons to design products and processes such as aircraft engines, vehicles, robots, manufacturing machinery and power-generation systems. You will be challenged to become a creative problem solver.
Mechanical engineers develop almost anything that involves energy and moving parts, so you will have many career options and opportunities to make a difference. These include careers in the automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, power generation and transformation or biomedical industries. Your degree also prepares you for further studies in a number of fields.
