Dunwoody Mechanical Engineering

Dunwoody Mechanical Engineering can lead to employment in a variety of industries, including architectural engineering, manufacturing, transportation, and quality control/testing. It’s a versatile degree for those who enjoy hands-on creation and problem-solving.

Coursework combines lab and theory so that the engineering principles you learn are reinforced and experienced through hands-on projects. Work in labs and shops stocked with state-of-the-industry equipment and tools, including Stratsys 3D printers, a Zeiss coordinate measuring machine, and an MTS Criterion Universal Testing System.

Small class sizes give you the chance to work closely with experienced instructors and network with your cohort as you move through the program.

Arts & Sciences courses help you understand the core mathematical and scientific principles that all engineering projects grow out of and provide you with the communication and critical thinking skills required to succeed in the profession.

Engineering coops and/or a senior project allow you to showcase your engineering skills in the real world. Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam—the first step in becoming a licensed professional engineer (PE).
