Mechanical engineers are responsible for research, design, computer-aided analysis, testing, control and manufacturing in diverse fields. Many mechanical engineering graduates take up management positions, while others prefer a career along technical lines. Because a mechanical engineer might work in any of a number of fields, the academic programs have been planned to offer a challenging and comprehensive education. The basic science program comprises physics and mathematics; the engineering science program comprises thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, solid mechanics, dynamics, materials and electronics integrated with laboratory experience. Moreover, studies in design and manufacturing prepare students equally well for a diversity of fields.
