MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

HANDS-ON LEARNING.

CoPS
This program is offered by the Norwich University David Crawford School of Engineering within the College of Professional Schools.

Mechanical engineering majors learn to design, develop and manufacture machines that produce, transmit and use power. Wherever machines are produced or used, there are mechanical engineers. The mechanical engineering program stresses lab work, internships, and a focus on solving real-world problems.

Mechanical engineers play a pivotal role in nearly everything that makes life work. From seemingly simple devices like doorknobs and zip-lock freezer bags to complex robots and spacecrafts, there is hardly an area of everyday life that hasn’t been influenced by a mechanical engineer somewhere along the path from invention to installation.

It is one of the broadest engineering categories. Mechanisms that mechanical engineers design, manufacture and test include: appliances, clocks, robots, airplanes, weapons, space stations, heating and air conditioning, pumps and turbines, electric power generators, automobiles and engines, hearing aids, artificial knees, air pollution control devices, energy-conserving devices, roller coasters

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
