Get the in-depth disciplinary knowledge you need for a successful career in engineering from the first US university to offer a mechanical engineering degree.
From gadgets to medical devices, to vehicles on land, air, space, and sea, to power plants and industrial machines, and engines to robots–mechanical engineers design and manufacture systems or parts for nearly every product manufactured throughout the world. The mechanical engineering bachelor's program at Stevens offers a broad background in engineering and the liberal arts, with the technical skills needed to support the design, testing, and manufacture of these products, systems, and devices.
As the first university to offer a mechanical engineering degree in the U.S., the mechanical engineering program at Stevens strives to educate the complete engineer. Classroom instruction and hands-on lab work come together to give you a thorough education on scientific and engineering proficiency, along with the values of professionalism, leadership, entrepreneurship, and ethics.
Our program emphasizes extensive training in communication, learning how to effectively present technical information orally, visually, and in written form, and encourages you to collaborate with your peers and faculty on a wide range of real world projects.
