Why Study 机械工程 at Wilkes?

Our program combines a rigorous, modern curriculum with the real-world projects and communication skills employers look for. You'll study traditional disciplines such as fluid mechanics, thermal sciences and mechanical design, as well as cutting-edge fields like additive manufacturing, robotics and nanotechnology. 你会慢慢学会的 doing,” with many opportunities to participate in research with experienced faculty. 认证 assures that the program meets the profession's quality standards.

The BS in 机械工程 program is accredited by the Engineering 认证 委员会 教唆 外部网站.

What Will You Learn as a 机械工程 主要?

  • You'll learn to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics.
  • Your study will follow three main tracks: solid mechanics/mechanical design, robotics/mechatronics and thermal sciences/fluid mechanics.
  • You'll learn to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors.
  • Starting in your first year, you'll develop skills with computer-based tools such as AutoCAD, Solid工作s and Matlab.
  • You may choose to select electives across a range of mechanical engineering disciplines or specialize in one area of interest. Choices include traditional fields such as thermal/fluids sciences, mechanical design or materials. 新兴领域的课程 such as nanomaterials, additive manufacturing, robotics and automation, and advanced 也提供CADD.



Our faculty members take an active interest in your progress, 工作ing closely with you in the classroom and laboratories. 教师 members know you as a person and are available to answer your questions. Labs are taught by our faculty, not graduate teaching 助理.


You'll 工作 on a business-sponsored project or produce a solution to a design problem 由你的团队确定. Our close connection with industry provides many opportunities for internships, which often lead to full-time jobs upon graduation.


Senior projects give you real-world team experience designing and producing a solution for a team-identified design problem or a business-sponsored project. 一些项目 have been so innovative and marketable that students have turned them into successful 企业. It’s not unusual for these 经历 to lead to job offers.


A lot of the professors have industry experience. 拥有它并把它带回来 to the classroom really shows you how real everything we’re doing is.Ethan Schwartz '20 -机械工程
The professors have been excellent in allowing me to take whatever classes I have wanted, and allowing me to test my limits.Spencer Yacuboski '21 -机械工程, Physics, 电气工程
