, IL,
Bradley’s mechanical engineering program prepares you to be a well-rounded engineer with experience in fields as diverse as robotics, bioengineering and machine design.


As a student in Bradley’s mechanical engineering program, you discover why mechanical engineering is one of the most versatile engineering backgrounds. You learn how to use technology to solve issues in areas such as energy, robotics, transportation and medicine. You apply classroom knowledge to a yearlong senior project with professional implications. The standard mechanical engineering program is a generalist degree; however, you can specialize in energy or biomedical concentrations if you want a more-focused experience. You also can stay at Bradley for a graduate degree in the field. U.S. News and World Report consistently ranks Bradley’s engineering programs among the nation’s best.

Bradley’s mechanical engineering degree successfully prepares you to enter the workforce or attend graduate school. In recent years almost all Bradley mechanical engineering students found employment or entered graduate school within six months of graduation. They’re working at places such as CNH Industrial, General Motors, the U.S. Air Force and Komatsu America Corp. Others are attending school at Ohio State University, the University of Michigan and the University of Texas-Austin.


The baccalaureate program in mechanical engineering (including the biomedical and energy concentrations) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET
