Engineering a better world
Mechanical and aerospace engineers solve problems. Mechanical engineers plan and design machines, tools, engines and other equipment or systems that produce or use power, such as instruments, controls, and machines as well as mechanical, thermal, hydraulic and heat transfer systems. Aerospace engineers design, develop, test and help produce commercial and military aircraft, surface effect vehicles, missiles, and other related hardware or systems for inside and outside the atmosphere.
Whichever field you choose, earning a degree from Western Michigan University will set you up for success as you pursue your professional goals.
Resources for your success
A hallmark of a Western engineering education is the opportunity to work with faculty who are leading experts in their fields. Through our academic and research labs, that work is enhanced through hands-on projects and opportunities for undergraduate research. We even house a student projects lab where you can explore your own ideas and work with other students on class or student organization designs.
