Mechanical engineering is a very broad discipline. The traditional role of a mechanical engineer is to design engines and turbines, renewable and conventional energy conversion systems, vehicles and aircraft, tooling and manufacturing equipment, and building services. The field continues to evolve: today's mechanical engineers design biomedical devices and instrumentation, sensors, 3D printers, micro-electro-mechanical systems, and robots. Since all products need to be designed to withstand stress, vibrations and heat, mechanical engineers are in demand at nearly all companies, including those that design and manufacture consumer electronics, semiconductor and computer manufacturers, and software companies specializing in computer-aided-design. The curriculum in mechanical engineering is intended to provide students with a broad interdisciplinary foundation, and specialized training in the two pillars of mechanical engineering: mechanical and thermal systems. The program offers a wide range of specialized tracks within mechanical engineering, allowing students to design a program tailored to their individual goals. Mechanical engineering students at Brown are active in a large number of engineering related student organizations, such as the satellite design group CUBESAT, the Formula Society of Automotive Engineers race car team, and the Brown Building Society. The concentration is composed of the following courses: The interdisciplinary core courses for the Sc.B., taken during the first five semesters Five upper level courses, chosen to meet requirements for one of the specialized areas of ME listed below A capstone design course An advanced science course Four approved courses in the humanities and social sciences The following specialized tracks are offered: Aerospace Applications Biomechanics Energy Conversion and Fluid and Thermal Systems Engineering Mechanics Mechanical Systems: Dynamics, Materials and Design Structures
