About

Mechanical Engineering offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is one of the most diverse engineering fields available, embracing many subfields and affecting all aspects of our lives.

Overview

Overview

Mechanical engineers work on new machines, products, and processes that hold the promise of better lives for all of us. They are concerned with both technological and economic aspects in the design, development, and use of their products. Today, one of the challenges is to design efficient, low-cost machines and processes that use the fewest possible natural resources to improve the lives of people throughout the world.

In the Mechanical Engineering program offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, engineering design, communication, teamwork, and laboratory experiences are integrated throughout the curriculum from freshman to senior year. The technical portion of the mechanical engineering curriculum is designed as a sequence of increasingly specialized experiences. The entering student's first year is spent mastering the basics of science: math, chemistry, and physics. Building on this base, in the second year students begin to take fundamental engineering courses such as statics, dynamics, basic circuits and electronics, thermodynamics, and strength of materials. By the third year, students are taking specialized mechanical engineering courses in the subfields of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, dynamic systems and controls, materials, mechanical design, and manufacturing. Finally, during the senior year, students have the opportunity to both broaden and deepen their knowledge of the field through individually chosen technical elective courses. At the end of the curriculum, students take the capstone senior design course where the knowledge and skills they have learned are applied to projects submitted to the department by corporate or faculty sponsors, preparing Mechanical Engineering students for their next leap into industry or graduate school.
