Why Study Mechanical Engineering at Wilkes University ?

Our program combines a rigorous, modern curriculum with the real-world projects and communication skills employers look for. You'll study traditional disciplines such as fluid mechanics, thermal sciences and mechanical design, as well as cutting-edge fields like additive manufacturing, robotics and nanotechnology. You'll “learn by doing,” with many opportunities to participate in research with experienced faculty. Accreditation assures that the program meets the profession's quality standards.

The BS in Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

What Will You Learn as a Mechanical Engineering Major?

  • You'll learn to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
  • Your study will follow three main tracks: solid mechanics/mechanical design, robotics/mechatronics and thermal sciences/fluid mechanics.
  • You'll learn to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors.
  • Starting in your first year, you'll develop skills with computer-based tools such as AutoCAD, Solidworks and Matlab.
  • You may choose to select electives across a range of mechanical engineering disciplines or specialize in one area of interest. Choices include traditional fields such as thermal/fluids sciences, mechanical design or materials. Classes in emerging fields such as nanomaterials, additive manufacturing, robotics and automation, and advanced CADD are also offered.
