Why study Mechanical Engineering at Rutgers?
Are you interested in finding new ways for producing sustainable, clean, and affordable energy; developing innovative technologies for improving health, designing innovative prosthetics, developing the new generation of 3D printers, or building original robots?
Virtually every object around us has passed through the hands of a mechanical engineer, making this field of engineering one of the most broad-based and extending into a wide range of industries, including robotics, energy generation and distribution, advanced manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, naval, materials development, pharmaceuticals and mechanobiology, and much more.
At Rutgers, mechanical engineering is about learning how to conceive new ideas and bring them to life through design and manufacturing.
Students acquire basic principles in design, analysis, and modeling of physical components and processes, while building core knowledge in fluids, thermal, and structures.
Students have access to state-of-the-art equipment in nearly 20 advanced labs and centers to apply their classroom learning in creating designs and conducting experiments.
Internships provide practical professional experience in business and industrial settings.
Students work in teams on culminating senior design projects, putting classroom learning to real-life use.
