Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering
Engineers design and build things. Practically every company that designs and produces a product employs a mechanical engineer. But mechanical engineers can also be found in research labs, the military, government, and in other professions such as medicine, law or teaching. When a need comes about for a new or improved product, companies call upon mechanical engineers to do the job. Engineers have to push beyond the limits of their previous work and use innovative technology to meet project requirements successfully. They are critical in all kinds of manufacturing, especially at the earliest stages when products and processes are being created and refined. Manufacturing engineering jobs require technical skills and knowledge, attention to detail, and creativity. Working as an engineer in manufacturing, you gain all the professional advantages of working in an increasingly high-tech industry plus solving problems that affect your community and the world. You also have the personal satisfaction of contributing to a key sector of the economy.
