Make everything work better
The tools and machines that mechanical engineers have designed throughout history have lightened our loads, improved our quality of life, and taken us from the far reaches of outer space to the inner workings of minuscule nano devices. In the University of New Haven’s ABET-accredited B.S. in Mechanical Engineering program you will join that long line of pioneers, using your skills to design, analyze, improve, and test the products and systems that are essential to everyday life -- and to create those that don’t yet exist.
Through our program, you’ll build a multidisciplinary foundation in mechanical, chemical, civil, and electrical engineering and develop skills in physics, chemistry, and mathematics as well.
All of it provides the basis for detailed study in mechanical engineering, in which you will:
- Learn to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- Design and conduct experiments, then analyze and interpret data
- Work hands-on in fully equipped, state-of-the-art laboratories
- Master modern techniques, skills, and engineering tools
- Explore the impact of engineering within global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- Design systems, components, and processes to meet specific needs and comply with realistic economic, environmental, social, ethical, and political restraints
- Gain real-world experience through an internship at a manufacturing company, consulting firm, technical organization, or government agency
- Have the opportunity to join the first semester, first-year study abroad program
