About the Program

Mechanical engineering students take courses in a wide range of fields, including computer programming and electrical circuits. The education received from Mason’s mechanical engineering program will prepare graduates to help solve both current and future societal problems. As a student, you gain experience working in teams to conceive, design, and produce solutions to sponsor-dictated mechanical engineering problems. Our dedicated labs provide opportunities to study fluid mechanics and heat transfer, mechanics, and materials science.

Program Opportunities

The role of mechanical engineers is ever-expanding as they find innovative solutions for today’s challenges and look to the future for problems yet to be identified. From design to manufacturing and product realization, mechanical engineers are cognizant of stealth threats due to ever-present cyber threats. Mechanical engineers oversee the operations and management of large systems along with the fiscal and human resources needed to run them.
