Mechanical engineers create things that work with a functional design every time. They are the designers, builders, and manufacturers. They believe in form and function. They know materials like the back of their hands. They create engines, machines, robots, controls, and products with a purpose. The role of a mechanical engineer is to transform a product from an idea to the market. Mechanical engineers make things work.
A degree in Mechanical Engineering allows majors in mechanical systems or energy systems to prepare for positions in product development, plant design, machine design, basic and applied research, environmental control, materials and manufacturing, robotics or technical sales. Graduates of this program have the knowledge essential for entry into this dynamic field of engineering or can continue their education through graduate studies. The School of Engineering & Computer Science offers a Masters of Science in Engineering Science with a concentration in Mechanical Engineering. Through our Blended Program a student can begin graduate course work during his/her senior year at Pacific and complete both a B.S. and M.S. degree in a total of five years!
The Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
