From Design to Fabrication

Just what comes to mind when you think of mechanical engineers? Are they people who design appliances — or people who design airplanes? Or both?

Mechanical engineers really do it all, designing and making nearly everything you can imagine. They design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, motor vehicles, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices and more. At the Watson School, we'll teach you the how and why, as well as help you learn to design and fabricate the products that will affect the lives of everyone around you.
