As a mechanical engineering student, you'll have the opportunity to work on a variety of hands-on projects.
Some of our students are currently working on wind tunnel experiments, space hardware design, nanotechnology development, pressure vessel research, coal combustion, agricultural innovations, and precision machining.
A Future That Works
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.
Apply for 975+ scholarships with one application. The 2024-25 application is now open.
