Department of Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is the application of science and technology essential to industry, government, the environment, and society. One of the broadest fields of engineering to study, the contributions of mechanical engineers influence society every day. Mechanical engineers are responsible for automobiles, airplanes, satellites, robots, power plants, machine tools, medical devices, communication equipment, and consumer products.

Western New England University provides a solid theoretical background combined with an extensive hands-on education through design projects in our modern, well-equipped labs. In your junior year, you will choose whether to stay on the General Mechanical Engineering track or follow a Manufacturing concentration. Either specialization will culminate in your capstone Senior Design Project, where you will propose, create, and build a project, often for an industry sponsor.
