Harness the wind to power your automobile, make a lighter aircraft by exploiting the strength of nano fibers smaller than your hair, or determine the optimal route of a cargo ship through wind and current-laden seas. Mechanical engineering is a broad, versatile and creative discipline concerned with conversion of energy to useful work; the design and production of machines; and the interaction of solids, liquids and gases. A mechanical engineering degree provides a solid technical foundation for careers in fields as diverse as automotive, alternative energy, defense, medicine, patent law, manufacturing, and aerospace.
