Behind the Machine
In the age of computerization, there is very often a machine in the background, and someone has to design and build it. Cranes, planes, nuclear reactors…even the food processor in your kitchen was designed by a mechanical engineer. You can go all over the world and find interesting and challenging jobs in the field of mechanical engineering.
At Mercer, mechanical engineers explore the fundamentals of engineering, learn basic principles, and apply these principles to reach optimal design solutions for engineering problems. Upon graduation, you will be poised as a competitively educated engineer who can effectively use the principles of:
- Fluids mechanics
- Heat transfer
- Machine design
- Materials science
- Solid mechanics
Our graduates have gone to work for companies such as Georgia Power, Milliken, Boeing, and Frito-Lay, and to matriculate in graduate programs at Purdue, Georgia Tech, and West Virginia.
