Enter a Growing Field with Confidence

Mechanical engineering is the broadest and most diverse engineering discipline, providing the skills to work in almost every industry that needs the design and manufacture of parts, devices, or systems.

The need for mechanical engineers is great and continuously rising in industries such as aerospace, automotive, biomedical, defense, electronics, robotics, power-generation, sports, and telecommunications. Attaining a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) degree opens the door to professional opportunities in local industries and research laboratories within the tri-state area (Connecticut, New York, New Jersey) and throughout the USA.

Careers in Mechanical Engineering include:

  • Manufacturing
  • Packaging
  • Aerospace
  • R&D
  • Energy & Sustainability
  • Tooling
  • Mechanical Design
  • Instrumentation
  • HVAC
  • Testing
  • Automation
  • Reliability
