Mechanical engineers design and analyze physical systems and are employed in a variety of industries in different capacities. Mechanical engineers play important roles in many types of companies, including automotive, petroleum, energy generation and conversion, aerospace, tire, consulting, chemical, electronic, and manufacturing.

The Mechanical Engineering curriculum at The University of Akron is designed to give the student knowledge of fundamental principles within

  • thermo-fluid systems,
  • structural and dynamic systems, and
  • design, manufacturing, and controls systems,

as well as the application of these principles to relevant engineering problems. A significant measure of the mechanical engineering education is the degree to which it has prepared the graduate to pursue a productive engineering career that is characterized by continued professional growth.
