Undergraduate study in mechanical engineering at Northwestern University starts with the innovative, integrated Engineering First® curriculum, which gives students a solid preparation in math, science, and engineering basics. It also provides students with hands-on experience working with real clients to design products and systems that solve authentic problems. With this background, fundamental mechanical engineering subjects are studied, such as dynamics, solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics, leading to cutting-edge courses such as computer-aided manufacturing, robotics, micromechanical systems, and energy principles. Throughout the curriculum, design courses, laboratory courses, and project courses allow students to acquire a taste for the complex task of designing, analyzing, and building a device. Supporting courses in allied fields of science and engineering broaden the student’s technical proficiency, while elective courses in social sciences, fine arts, history, and philosophy broaden the student’s background. CURRICULUM We empower our students to become whole-brain engineers by integrating elements of left-brain thinking (analysis, logic, and math) with the high-level right-brain thinking that fosters intuition and creativity. The required and recommended courses have been selected to give students a broad exposure to various aspects of engineering and a firm background for materials science and engineering. OVERVIEW Engineering Career Development (ECD) enhances each student’s unique career plan by offering both students and employers a mutually-beneficial means of connecting in the world beyond the classroom. Our mission is to provide all McCormick students with the tools necessary for lifelong career management and to forge relationships with employer partners for this end.
