Why Study Mechanical Engineering at NYU?
Mechanical engineering builds the physical systems and devices that define modern society — everything from air conditioning to automobiles, robots to power plants, artificial limbs to escalators, and rocket engines to weather satellites. Mechanical engineering offers almost limitless opportunity for the inventions and innovations that lead to entrepreneurial ventures.
Through hands-on computer and laboratory work in our state-of-the-art facilities, the School of Engineering’s Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BMSE) program teaches the principles underpinning the discipline and how to apply them in the field.
In the University's words -
"We develop your talents in such specialized areas as solid and fluid mechanics, machine control systems, and robotic devices.
Our BSME degree program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET
Faculty and students in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace carry out research in diverse areas such as smart materials, complex dynamical systems, biomimetics, nanomaterials, energy systems, fire propagation, and bio-fluid mechanics.
Our programs offer students diverse and multidimensional education that addresses fundamental understanding of the underlying mathematics, sciences, and engineering; design methodologies; use of modern simulation and design tools; and extensive laboratories for undergraduate and graduate instruction and research."
Undergraduate and graduate programs in mechanical engineering are designed primarily to develop talents in such areas as design of components, fluid and thermal systems, controls and robotic systems and computer-integrated mechanical and electromechanical systems.
However, many graduating students eventually apply their training to the additional diversified fields of computer engineering, nanotechnology, software development, financial engineering, bioengineering, manufacturing, astronautics, systems engineering and corporate management and law. As students mature and realize their abilities, their professional lives may center on engineering research, government, business or education.
Mechanical engineers find careers in industries including national defense, aerospace, automotive, and telecommunications. Mechanical engineering also has a long tradition of breaking new ground in such areas as resource conservation, improved efficiency of energy-consuming devices, and renewable energy sources.
There are emerging opportunities in biomedical systems and devices, as well as nanotechnology and mechatronics.
