Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Program Overview

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineers in lab.

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering touches nearly every aspect of our modern lives. Mechanical engineers use principles of motion, energy, force, and materials science to design and build mechanical devices that lift enormous loads or move microscopic components. Aerospace engineers develop new technologies in the defense, aviation, astronautics, and space industries including modern jetliners, satellites, rockets, and space vehicles. Undergraduates at USU can earn a degree in Mechanical Engineering with an optional emphasis in Aerospace Engineering.
