Make an Impact with Mechanical Engineering
In our undergraduate mechanical engineering program, you'll learn how to design and analyze mechanical and thermal systems and gain in-depth knowledge in one of these two areas. With this foundation, you’ll be prepared to enter the industry of your choice.
You’ll get hands-on experience throughout the curriculum taught by engineers, scientists, and industry experts, culminating in your senior design project. Those projects are sponsored by companies in the Washington D.C. area, creating real-world experiences for our students.
While you're here, you'll learn how to improve your skills and discover new technologies. You'll also establish a foundation for life-long learning to master new techniques throughout your career, putting you a step ahead of your peers.
“Our students are lucky to have state-of-the-art spaces and equipment to complement the theories they’ve learned in their courses.”
