BSE in Mechanical Engineering

About the Program

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan-Dearborn offers the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree in the field of Mechanical Engineering.

The mechanical engineering field is very broad. Mechanical engineers are active in practically all industries, from automotive to pharmaceutical. They understand the basic principles of statics and dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid flows, materials, control, and other areas and know how to use these principles to design and manufacture technical systems. The field is continuously evolving in response to the challenges presented by new technologies.

The undergraduate program in mechanical engineering starts with providing a strong foundation in all the basic ingredients of engineering: the natural and physical sciences, mathematics, a comprehensive socio-economic-cultural background, the behavioral sciences, and continues with the engineering sciences, development of problem-solving and teamwork skills, engineering design, and emerging technologies.

Employment Opportunities

Mechanical engineering has long been one of the most popular degrees with employers. It is predicted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics that the employment will increase by about 7% from 2020 to 2030.  Interestingly, Michigan has by far the largest employment of mechanical engineers among all 50 states.

Mechanical engineers who recently graduated from the University of Michigan-Dearborn have found professional employment in such companies as Bosch, Chrysler, Denso International, General Electric, General Motors, Ford, Kelsey Hayes, Rockwell, Terumo Cardiovascular Systems, Toyota Technical Center, U.S. Army Tank Command, and U.S. Steel.


The BSE Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
