Study and prepare to meet the demand of new and existing high-tech industries by way of design, production, and operation of machinery.
The distinctive signature of the program is its strong technical core coupled with the ability to fit either a technical or a non-technical minor into the curricula. You’ll explore the breadth of Syracuse University by complementing your mechanical engineering degree with a minor in business, public policy, fine arts, public communications, and many more.
You’ll leave Syracuse prepared to make an impact throughout the complete spectrum of industries, including automotive, industrial machinery, publishing and printing, electrical and thermal power, chemical processing, textile, petroleum, computer and electronic, pharmaceutical, apparel, consumer products, soap and cosmetics, paper and wood products, rubber, and glass.
The 4+1 B.S./M.S. Program allows you to earn a master’s degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering one year after successful completion of the bachelor’s degree.
Broaden your perspective and enhance your resume with an international experience through Syracuse Abroad, with more than 100 programs in 60 countries.
Mechanical engineering majors most often go abroad to Syracuse University Centers in Florence and Strasbourg, and to our World Partner Programs University College Dublin and the University of New South Wales. Summer programs of interest include Engineering Research Projects in Strasbourg.
