Mechanical Engineering


Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Program

Mechanical engineers are involved in designing, building and testing essentially any product that has movement. With Taylor's well-rounded Mechanical Engineering major, you'll focus on the theory and behavior of mechanical systems.

You'll study fluid mechanics, heat transfer, the dynamics of machinery, and materials used for machine design. Projects are embedded in classes, so you'll be working on big-picture projects, while being mentored by faculty with deep experience in the engineering field.

By integrating innovation and entrepreneurship with engineering, Mechanical Engineering will fully equip you to enter the workforce (or pursue graduate work) in a range of mechanically-oriented disciplines. Mechanical Engineering students often pursue careers in mechanical engineering, automotive and manufacturing engineering, aerospace engineering, materials science, robotics, biomechanics, and prosthetics.

Engineering Degree Options

Taylor's Engineering major is a single interdisciplinary BS Engineering degree that builds a broad and robust engineering foundation applicable to all engineering disciplines, with a particular strength in mechanical and electrical. All Engineering majors choose a concentration: Electrical, Physics, or General.

Computer Engineering Major

A major rather than an Engineering concentration, Computer Engineering offers a pathway to design and build new computer technology. Practical courses will integrate an understanding of computer science, engineering, physics, and mathematics by focusing on hardware design, software programming, electric circuits, mathematics modeling, embedded systems, and CPU architectures.

Class of 2021
"I chose Taylor because I knew I would graduate prepared for the path I wanted to pursue as a Mechanical Engineer. During my short time at Allison Transmission, I am doing great and have already held two manufacturing roles and been promoted. I felt prepared for both positions and find that I work more effectively within cross functional teams than my peers at similar levels in the company."
