Mechanical Engineering Department
The Mechanical Engineering Department is committed to providing each of our students with an outstanding education that serves as a foundation for future professional success. Many classes include hands-on laboratory learning exercises in which students get to actively participate. Some of the many projects our students are working on include wind tunnel experiments, space hardware design, nanotechnology development, pressure vessel research, coal combustion, agricultural innovations, and precision machining.
Mechanical engineering is one of the most versatile of all the engineering disciplines. Our graduates work in power, aircraft, automotive, and defense industries throughout the US, while many choose to work locally with companies such as Arctic Cat, Polaris, Marvin Windows, and Goodrich Corporation.
Nearly all of our students receive job offers before they graduate or elect to continue in graduate education at UND and other fine engineering schools. Cooperative education opportunities and summer internships are also available to you during your academic career at UND.

The primary mission of the Mechanical Engineering Department is to prepare graduates to function effectively as mechanical engineers in a wide spectrum of industries. The department's further mission is to engage in research and scholarly activity that contribute to basic and applied discovery to enhance student learning while being of benefit to the state, region, and nation.
