The Mechanical Engineering major (designated as a pre-major) helps students build a strong engineering foundation by studying thermal/fluids, materials/mechanical systems and design. In addition to foundational mechanical engineering courses, students can further specialize by choosing electives that will improve their ability to apply fundamentals and to design machines and energy systems. Available courses include:
- Mechanical Vibrations
- Composite Materials
- Heat Transfer
Additionally, there are organizations dedicated specifically to mechanical Engineering students. From the Society of Automotive Engineers Baja, to National Society of Black Engineers to Engineers with a Mission, students will have opportunities to engage in leadership, professional development, student projects and service.
Mechanical Engineer majors can expect to find job opportunities in many positions and industries including aerospace, architecture, oil and gas, and many others. Many students also continue their education in the engineering field at Baylor and other institutions.
Baylor offers three residential housing options for students wishing to live in a community of students with similar interests. Among these is the Teal Residential College for Engineering and Computer Science located in the East Village residential area.
