Mechanical Engineering

What is Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers helped to create the car you drive to work, the potato chips you eat at lunch and the heating and air-conditioning system that keeps you comfortable at home.

They also helped to create the Mars Rover, industrial robots, and solar heating systems. With a mechanical engineering degree you may end up working in industries such as aerospace, automotive, bioengineering, communications, petroleum or product manufacturing.  

At Merrimack, we prepare exceptional engineers.
