Mechanical engineering is a broad technical discipline, covering the design, development, analysis, control and testing of machines for converting energy from one form to another to perform useful work. IPFW offers a four-year mechanical engineering undergraduate program leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree.
Areas of specialization include engineering mechanics (solid mechanics, machine dynamics and mechanical design), energy systems (thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer), and materials / manufacturing (materials selection and materials processing).
Our students, while drawn from diverse backgrounds, are all extremely able and committed to learning. IPFW delivers an exceptional educational experience to engineering students, encouraging collaboration and teamwork throughout the curriculum.
