BA Mechanical Engineering

General

Program Description

From your first year as a mechanical engineering major at Bucknell, you'll design and build real devices that confront challenges facing society.

You might work with your professors to study next-generation solar energy, test self-driving vehicle technology, or build an exhibit for the nearby Lewisburg Children's Museum.

Learn to use state-of-the-art research facilities, including a wind tunnel, automotive and renewable energy labs, and makerspaces. Then put what you've learned to work in a senior design project where you'll design, build and test a device for a real corporate client, like GE, Corning or Universal Parks, and make connections that often lead to internship and job opportunities.

Along the way, you'll build in-demand skills that prepare you for careers in fields including manufacturing, aerospace, defense, technology, construction and more.
