Overview

Milwaukee School of Engineering offers a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, with options to specialize in mechanical design, energy systems, materials/manufacturing and control systems. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. As a result, MEs work in a large number of industries, including aerospace, power generation, renewable energy, automation, manufacturing, transportation, building energy supply and medical devices — just to name a few.

At Mechanical Engineering, the breadth of the ME program is its strength. Students get a wide exposure to the four main areas of ME, with options to specialize in one or more. As a result, students are able to find jobs in a wide variety of industries and positions. ME students use their degrees in medical applications, robotic applications and everything in-between.

Learning outcomes

The degree also forms a solid foundation for further graduate studies. Electives in MSOE’s mechanical engineering program allow for specialization including mechanical design (solid mechanics, machine dynamics and medical applications), energy systems (renewable energy, aerodynamics, thermal systems and fluid power) and materials/manufacturing (metals, polymers, composites and processing).

Program Goals

The goals of the mechanical engineering program are:

  • To produce mechanical engineering graduates with a strong theoretical and applications background, whose analytical, design and laboratory experiences make them attractive to industry and capable of advanced study in engineering.
  • To produce well-rounded engineers who view engineering as a profession with social and ethical responsibilities.
  • To provide an intimate learning environment, with personal involvement of faculty with significant industrial experience.
