Mechanical engineering is a core discipline which encompasses the general areas of design and manufacturing, fluid and solid mechanics, and thermal and materials science. From developing new energy technologies to improving the design and functionality of artificial limbs, many career directions are open to mechanical engineers, who work in both the public and private sectors.
At CU, students learn by doing. A first-year projects course allows students to design, plan, and create solutions to real-world challenges. Through our Design Center Colorado, mechanical engineering senior design projects are sponsored by local and national industry, providing hands-on, relevant design experiences. Students can also participate in undergraduate research, internships and industry co-ops. Here are more compelling reasons why you should choose to go to CU for your mechanical engineering education.
CU-Boulder Mechanical Engineering is an exceptional place for graduate study. As one of the nation's premier comprehensive research universities, CU-Boulder receives the consistently high rankings among its peers, and Mechanical Engineering is no exception, ranking in the top 20 of all mechanical engineering programs in the US, according to the latest NRC assessment. As an ME student, you will not only be part of such a program, but will meet other smart, motivated and innovative people, who produce groundbreaking research and address critical issues facing our world. Here are more compelling reasons why you should choose to go to CU for your mechanical engineering education.
