Degree: Bachelor of Science in Engineering
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineers harness the power of machines to help us accomplish our tasks and goals faster, better, safer and more efficiently. We’ve designed and improved machines to better our lives—from the refrigerator that stores our lunches to the cars that get us where we’re going to the medical devices that keep us healthy.
If you’re looking to be an engineer who solves problems—who can weave together fundamental knowledge of not just math, physics and chemistry, but also fluid and thermal sciences, kinetics and dynamics in order to design real-world solutions and approach problem solving creatively, then a mechanical engineering degree could be right for you.
Since 1887, the Case School of Engineering has been educating leaders in problem-solving and design engineering who understand how to transmit power, energy and forces to make the world move. Our ABET-accredited program offers a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree in mechanical engineering that will provide you with a strong foundation in core concepts that you’ll apply to solve a variety of problems related to machines, the environment, materials, fluids and heat. Your mechanical engineering education can take you to any number of industries, including robotics, advanced manufacturing, medical devices, energy and nanotechnology.
Our curriculum teaches you not just how something works, but why. You’ll gain a strong understanding of scientific principles that will allow you to be more creative in how you approach each problem and challenge. We produce well-rounded engineers who aren’t technicians, but scientists who invent the future.
Want to go further? We make it easy to double major in both mechanical engineering and aerospace engineering with the addition of just three more credits, when you align your technical electives appropriately. Or consider our BS/MS program, which lets you earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree in just five years. Plus, your acceptance into Case Western Reserve means the entire campus is at your disposal—we make it easy to explore all your interests across our schools, whether that means continuing your passion for music and dance with a minor or pursuing your entrepreneurial dreams with business and management courses. Even core requirements like composition classes can be met by interesting seminar topics like combating poverty and medieval robots.
