Mechanical Engineering (B.S.)

Are you proficient in mathematics, science, and statistics? Interested in machines and robotics? Then the mechanical engineering program at UNO will meet your technophilic interests and prepare you for graduate studies and a host of career options in the Gulf Coast region and beyond.

Accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), our curriculum focuses on the special engineering and structural needs of the oil, petrochemical, aerospace, and manufacturing industries. Because New Orleans is a major outlet to the Gulf of Mexico, the city is a hub for numerous offshore oil and gas producers as well as other
engineering projects.

Another way you can refine your skills and make the most of your coursework is to get involved in student organizations (Order of the Engineer, Society of American Military Engineers, the Louisiana Engineering Society) or student projects like the Mechanical Engineering Mini Baja Competition, that will test you and your team members’ knowledge of mechanical design and construction.
