Harness the wind to power your automobile, make a lighter aircraft by exploiting the strength of nano fibers thinner than a 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. 

At Wayne State's College of Engineering, you'll learn from nationally renowned faculty experts and benefit from our high-impact practices of student success: hands-on experience, global perspective, undergraduate research, internships and co-ops, and community engagement.

I chose Wayne State because I absolutely love the campus and all the opportunities that the College of Engineering has to offer, such as assistance with finding internships and post-graduation opportunities.
