Why Study Mechanical Engineering at UND?
Gain hands-on experience from the first courses you take in the University of North Dakota's Mechanical Engineering program. You'll take four science courses with labs during your first two years, and you'll build a component or system designed by you in at least one class every year. All your classes will emphasize teamwork and collaborative problem solving, mandatory skills in today's engineering workplace.
Our combined mechanical engineering degree program could let you earn a master's degree in mechanical engineering in just one additional year.
You may focus on one of four optional concentrations:
- Mechanical Design
- Thermal Sciences
- Manufacturing and Materials
- Aerospace (134 credit hours required)
