What is MEng in Mechanical Engineering?

Mechanical Engineering is one of the broadest branches of engineering. Mechanical Engineering combines physics and mathematics principles with material science to design, create and maintain mechanical systems. Mechanical Engineers work to solve problems and create solutions for many different fields including Aerospace, Automotive, Health Care, Energy, and many more. From research and development of new products to solving global problems like climate change, every modern device and system you use today need to have the input of a mechanical engineer. Our online Master of Engineering (MEng) in Mechanical Engineering program will give you the skills to be successful in your engineering career.

At UC’s top-ranked Online Masters in Engineering in Mechanical Engineering program, you’ll receive the same rigorous engineering coursework as a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering, but with additional non-technology business courses. Our pragmatic, practical, non-research degree enables you to make a more significant contribution to your business team and/or move into a leadership position.

Engineers who complete this degree are prepared to solve the complex problems of today and manage tasks and projects successfully. For registered engineers, our program is an academically based way to meet the continuing education requirements to maintain licensure.

What Do Mechanical Engineers Do?

Mechanical Engineers use their ideas, knowledge, and creativity to create new technologies or products. Every field can use the help and expertise of a Mechanical Engineer to help solve or fix their problems. Mechanical Engineers design, create and test all forms of machines and tools that are used in every industry.
