Undergraduate Program


Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines, preparing students for a wide range of career opportunities in industries such as aerospace, automotive, bioengineering, controls, design and manufacturing. The UD mechanical engineering department offers a quality education at an exceptional value. The department is small enough to facilitate direct contact between faculty and students yet large enough to offer a diverse range of resources.
