How do we improve the things we all use in our day-to-day lives? Simple. Mechanical Engineering. While generally associated with design and manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering is, in fact, the broadest and most diverse engineering disciplines. It consists of the application of mathematics, physics, and the principles of material science to the analysis, design, manufacture, and maintenance of mechanical systems.
Mechanical Engineers design and manufacture everything from smaller devices such as microwaves to larger systems such as automobiles and spacecraft. Mechanical Engineering applies mathematics, physics, and the principles of material science to the analysis, design, manufacture, and maintenance of mechanical systems. For this, a broad range of skills are needed, including the ability to model the mechanics of solids and fluids, as well as the flow of heat and energy.
Since these skills are required for virtually everything that is made, mechanical engineering is arguably the broadest and most diverse engineering disciplines. Graduates of Mechanical Engineering programs pursue careers in a wide range of sectors, including the defense, biomedical, manufacturing, mining, and automotive industries. Mechanical Engineers play a central role in the aerospace, automotive design, and manufacturing industries, as well as in biomedical technology.
AUM’s Mechanical degree program equips you with the range of skills needed to do this. Core topics you will study as part of the Mechanical Engineering curriculum includes:
- Solid and Fluid Mechanics
